Lead a Literacy Intervention with Large Print

1 min read

| By Gale Staff |

Almost two-thirds of 4th and 8th grade students in our nation’s schools are reading at a basic or below-basic grade level.* What can educators do to support these striving readers and help bridge the achievement gap?

Large print books are a good place to start. Thorndike Press, from Gale, a Cengage Company, partnered with Project Tomorrow® to conduct a yearlong nationwide study evaluating the impact of large print books on the reading skills and mindsets of students in grades 3–12 at 15 diverse schools.

Register for this webinar on Thursday, October 17 at 2PM EST to hear Dr. Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow®, and panelists discuss key findings from the study. You’ll gain new insights from the perspectives of students, teachers, librarians, and administrators who experienced the benefits of large print—a literacy intervention tool that works.

Plus, all attendees will receive access to download the full study and associated content like the infographic, educational videos, and more.
