About this learning opportunity

As teachers support the diffentiated needs of the readers in the classroom, Educational Assistants also play a valuable role in supporting student learning through diffentiated instruction.  Educational Assistants will gather knowledge of how to use Guided Reading skills to engage students and build their comprehension and fluency in reading.
