Reading Practices to Help Improve Instruction. SEDL Letter, Volume XIX, Number 2
Blair, Leslie Asher, Ed.
Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL)
This issue focuses on practices that can help improve reading instruction and includes two announcements from Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL). It begins with a look at study groups, the practice of teachers getting together to focus on instructional practices and student learning. Stacey Joyner, a staff member of SEDL's Texas Comprehensive Center, discusses how these groups can be structured and how to get them started. Teachers aren't the only adults who can support children's reading efforts--parents have a big role to play, too. Mike Hall, director of Strong Fathers, Strong Families writes about his organization's reading nights designed especially for dads and their children. Finally, Ada Muoneke, who works with both of SEDL's comprehensive centers, discusses Response to Intervention (RtI). RtI is being discussed among educators across the country as a way to strengthen instruction for all students and more accurately identify students as learning disabled. Ada's article is an overview of RtI--a complex process that deserves careful consideration and study. (Contains 1 figure. Each article contains references.)
