“Reading means getting meaning from text. The essence of reading is a transaction between the words of an author and the mind of the reader, during which meaning is constructed.” What does this mean for our students who are unable to read grade level materials independently?

This session will explore text readers and how they can impact a student’s learning in the classroom setting. We will determine which students could benefit from a text reader and the impact we have discovered for DMPS students. We will identify the difference between independent reading levels and grade level reading as well as explore strategies on integrating text readers into your classroom activities for students who need that support.
