Professional Development for Grades 4-12 Educators
The College of New Jersey has established the Dyslexia Initiative in an effort to provide a helpful and reliable resource for teachers and schools in New Jersey who are looking to identify and educate children who have dyslexia or other serious literacy disabilities. To do this, TCNJ utilizes the REWARDS program which has a proven track record of helping students with dyslexia or other literacy disabilities perform better. If you are helping struggling readers in any grade from 4-12, this workshop is for you!
As described on the website, “The REWARDS family of short-term reading and writing intervention materials is specifically designed for adolescent struggling learners in grades 4-12. Developed by award-winning author Dr. Anita Archer, these short-term interventions, consisting of 20-25 lessons, produce long-term literacy achievement.
Attend this one-day workshop to learn how REWARDS:
- Increases fluency, vocabulary knowledge, and comprehension skills.
- Increases success in content-area classes.
- Provides practice with the state test questions.
- Refines sentence-writing abilities and sophistication of writing
- Effectively helps all struggling readers.”
