According to The Nation’s Report Card, 67 percent of 8th graders in public schools aren’t proficient in reading. When a student isn’t reading at their grade level, it can affect their learning as a whole.
During this webinar, we will be sharing results from a Project Tomorrow efficacy and feedback study to evaluate the impact of using Thorndike Press large print books on 4th – 11th graders at 15 schools representing a diverse set of communities. Learn the benefits associated with the effective usage of large print from the perspectives of students, teachers, librarians, and administrators, including relationships with academic outcomes, as well as a regular print comparison.
Attendees will receive exclusive access to a detailed white paper on the study. This presentation will be of interest to elementary through high school teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, and reading specialists.Presenters:
