Study Circle on Teaching Adults to Read


As part of LINCS Region 4 activities, we are conducting a Study Circle (Webinar style using Blackboard Collaborate) on the Teaching Adults to Read (TAR) Fluency online workshop. It will focus in-depth on implementation of the Fluency section of the reading components into personal instructional practice. We will have 8-10 teachers who are currently teaching form a cohort community wherein they will explore implementation strategies and share lesson plans and experiences in using them with different student groups.

At the completion of the Study Circle, each participant will receive a OVAE LINCS Certificate of Completion. We are also creating a Community of Practice on the OVAE LINCS website to continue the discussion and support teachers with resources and materials. The time commitment is minimal (four 90-120 minute interactive webinars).

The Webinar is scheduled for September 18 (Introduction session), October 9, 16, and 23 from 2:00-4:00 PM EST 1:00-3:00 PM CST, 12:00-2:00 PM MST, and 11:00 AM-1:00 PM PST.
