More and more, middle school teachers are figuring out that they need help with reading comprehension. I just wrote a chapter about that (more on that later), but today I did a workshop for a group of middle school teachers on reading comprehension in Blue Island, IL. These teachers get it that they have a responsibility to address students' reading and they even seem to be buying the idea that they need to spend several hours each week on these issues. If we can get middle school teachers everyplace to take that on, we are likely to see real reading improvement--even more than we have seen from primary grade initiatives.
Here is my presentation from today.
