Reaching struggling readers has always been a challenge and that is truer now than ever before. With a dazzling array of distractions, it can be difficult to engage a reader with text and help them find those connections that are so important to be successful in school and in life. This webinar will discuss available books that are useful with struggling readers but also some of the new technologies and approaches that can be useful in connecting with these students, including audio books, digital and eBooks, classroom projects and more. Join a panel including a bestselling author, a library media specialist, a publisher and a state library director of development for a far-reaching discussion on reaching more readers, in more ways.
