Term 2 Teach Along –
Supporting Students with Reading Difficulty

Almost every class has students who are struggling to learn to read and almost every teacher has had students who they wish they could do more for. The Term 2 Teach Along will help you understand the potential causes of reading difficulty and how to support learners in your classroom. Drawing on the science of reading, my own experience as a private tutor, special education teacher and curriculum coach, the Term 2 Teach Along is designed to support your classroom program with practical and a student centred approach that can be implemented in any school.
