Welcome to the Reading Lessons: Young Readers and Struggling Readers Series
December: Reading Lab
By Matthew Glavach
For December, I am adding a new lesson to the middle school and high school struggling readers lab.
I have developed resources to help students with reading problems improve their reading and success in reading and understanding their textbooks.
It is recommended that students review earlier TIMED READINGS in READING THE NEWS to see if they can improve their reading time and scores. Improving reading speed strengthens brain areas involved in reading to work together and become automatic.
CONTACT ME I would enjoy hearing how the programs are working for you or if you have questions about how to use a program. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through my website at www.StrugglingReaders.com. I have several reading programs that you can download free at my website.
