The Center on Instruction hosted a WebEx on October 24, 2007, to provide an opportunity for authors Dr. Sharon Vaughn and Dr. Jeanne Wanzek to present findings from the Extensive Interventions in Grades K-3: From Research to Practice report and to discuss the implications on reading-related issues for primary-grade students at risk for reading difficulties and learning disabilities. The PowerPoint presentation from the meeting is available for download below. An archived file of the WebEx is available here. The document itself can also be downloaded below, or from our resources section.
This resource, along with the report, can facilitate the strengthening of reading instruction for implementation of the College & Career Ready Standards (including Common Core State Standards) and support broader school improvement efforts, including the implementation of School Improvement Grants (SIG), by accelerating the acquisition of basic reading skills for struggling students and students with disabilities in elementary school.
