Welcome! This website was designed to provide support for teaching struggling readers, as well as, a diverse population of readers. Most students will benefit from the recommendations and resources found on this website. However, many of these recommendations are research-based to specifically benefit our diverse learners.
What is a "Diverse Learner"? Diverse Learners can be: *English Language Learners (ELL or ESOL) *Special Education Students (SPED) *Economically Disadvantaged
Remember: Set high expectations for ALL students. Students will rise to what you expect, so if you don’t have high expectations for students and treat them accordingly, they will not meet high expectations. Similarly, if you have high expectations for students, they will generally meet your expectations. (Almaguer& Esquierdo, 2013).
