Improve reading skills by helping students learn how to set their own goals. Dr. Linda Mason helps us understand how to help students become better readers with goal setting, self-regulating, and self-assessment strategies.
Linda shares lots of practical research-based advice on helping struggling readers. I find her revelation about students with ED and the impact these strategies have on their reading and writing very exciting. We cover a lot of ground in today’s episode.
