Leveraging Teacher Emotions for Student Success in Reading

When upper-grade level teachers encounter students with reading difficulties, they often enter a cycle of frustration, empathy, and defeat.

It’s time to break the cycle. This whitepaper provides recommendations for these teachers to help them channel those emotions into the motivation, clarity, and conviction needed to make a real impact for these students. By grounding the student’s need in the Science of Reading, uncovering whether the deficit is in decoding or comprehension, and engaging the student in an honest conversation around their learning goals, teachers can set the wheels in motion to lift up these readers needing support and get them the intervention that they need.
