Training and support for tutors and teachers working with students reading and writing below an 8th grade level.
Most tutors and teachers receive quality training before they start working with students. However, once they begin their teaching experience, they have little access to additional training and support.
Teacher Training Plus, funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, is a webinar series across four strands that presents best-practice instructional strategies. These video recordings are of the first round of webinars presented in the fall of 2022 and the winter and spring of 2023.
Within each strand, we identified three areas of need and designed webinars to address each. Throughout all three topics, we addressed working in a multilevel class or group and converting in-person teaching strategies to distance learning.
