Discussion will include:
  • How to find out what kinds of books each individual child will be motivated by
  • Reading motivation and engagement for the struggling reader

  • When speeding up the text is appropriate and how this can help students finish required reading faster
  • Become familiar with how a student needs to interact with technology
  • Tips on sharing progress with students to build daily reading habits
