To attain grade-level reading proficiency, students need systematic foundational skills instruction as well as a robust vocabulary and ample exposure to academic content. Typically, the learning needs of such students are addressed through systematic and differentiated instruction within the core reading block and providing intensive interventions to ensure these students receive the targeted instruction needed to accelerate their reading. This webinar is intended to provide guidance to schools to support the implementation of a transition class for kindergarten through 3rd grade students and/or a Grade 3 intensive acceleration class. The accompanying document, GUIDELINES FOR STUDENTS IDENTIFIED WITH A READING DEFICIENCY AND/OR STUDENTS NOT PROMOTED, includes a framework and recommendations to assist educators with supporting students’ learning needs.
