My name is Daphne and I am the PI of the Center for the Study of Adult Literacy (csal.gsu.edu). I would like you to invite you to learn more about our work at the COABE conference (https://www.coabe.org/conference-2018/ ) Please join us at the following sessions:
Findings from the Center for the Study of Adult Literacy
Monday, March 26th from 2:00pm-3:15pm in Alhambra room
Staff at the Center for the Study of Adult Literacy administered 37 related reading measures to 544 participants. A reading intervention was also developed and piloted. This session will provide preliminary findings of participants' performances on our assessment battery and their progress as a result of our intervention. You will leave this session with information about what skills are important and what strategies are necessary for students at the third to seventh grade level to learn, students' relative strengths and weaknesses, and examples of instructional strategies to take back to your own classroom.
Adding to Your Toolbox for Teaching Reading to Adult Learners
Wednesday, March 28th from 1:45pm-3:00pm in Maryvale B room
In this session, we will share tools for working with adults who may read at different levels and have different language backgrounds. We will discuss the common types of mistakes learners at these reading levels often make, as well as ways to teach them foundational decoding and comprehension skills. We will share online materials available to you for use in your classrooms for reading practice.
