The Center on Instruction hosted a WebEx on June 30, 2008, focused on a soon-to-be-released synopsis of a research synthesis, “Improving Comprehension of Expository Text in Students With LD”. One of the authors, Asha Jitendra, discussed the results of the synthesis that addressed instructional approaches for enhancing reading comprehension in upper elementary, middle, and high school students with learning disabilities. The PowerPoint presentation from the WebEx is available for download below, and the archived WebEx is available here.
This resource can facilitate the strengthening of reading and English/Language Arts 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 facilitating the acceleration of reading instruction for adolescent struggling readers and students with disabilities.
