Course Description:

Investigate new researched-based techniques that will help your students develop improved fluency as readers.

Learn how to assess your student's skill level in spelling and set appropriate and very individual goals for your learners.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.
