Building Reading Skills Using Authentic Materials

1:00 - 5:00pm

Convention Center – 103C

How can practitioners equip learners with reading skills needed for success in the workplace? Participants learn about evidence-based resources; practice evidence-based activities to build learners’ alphabetic and word analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension skills; and, using authentic workplace materials, develop activities to address learner needs.

Participants will

  • learn about evidence-based resources on teaching adult English language learners to read
  • practice evidence-based activities using authentic workplace materials such as emails, charts, graphs, memos, and forms; and
  • work collaboratively or independently as appropriate to  develop and share reading activities that address their learners and their instructional contexts.
