In October 2016 Michigan lawmakers passed Public Act 306 to ensure that all students are reading at benchmark by the end of 3rd grade. However, long before the Michigan reading law was passed, Lake Orion Community Schools was already working hard to improve instructional practices and increase reading achievement across the district. Not only have reading scores improved, but the district’s early literacy intervention program has received international recognition.
Join Lake Orion’s Tamura Oberle, Educational Leadership and Teacher Consultant, and Jillian Knapp, School Psychologist, Special Education Coach and District Data Specialist, for this hour-long webinar as they:
Linda Diamond, author of the Teaching Reading Sourcebook and Assessing Reading: Multiple Measures, will join the Lake Orion team who will also discuss how these professional books have helped shape the district’s reading instruction.
This is a wonderful opportunity to learn how another district is tackling the challenge of ensuring all students, including English learners and those with disabilities, have strong reading skills.
