MDE Webinar on Transition and Intensive Acceleration Class Guidance: April 29

To achieve grade-level reading proficiency, students need systematic foundational skills instruction, exposure to a robust vocabulary, and ample experience with academic content. Best practice for assisting students’ needs to accelerate learning include:

  • systematic instruction,
  • differentiated instruction in the core reading block, and
  • targeted intensive interventions.

The MDE is hosting a webinar to provide guidance to schools on the implementation of these strategies within the context of a transition class for kindergarten through 3rd grade students and/or a Grade 3 intensive acceleration class.

The accompanying resource, GUIDELINES FOR STUDENTS IDENTIFIED WITH A READING DEFICIENCY AND/OR STUDENTS NOT PROMOTED, includes a framework and recommendations to assist educators with providing student support.

WEBINAR DATE:    April 29th

TIME:                         3:00 pm – 4:15 pm
