1. How To Teach Reading When You’re Not A Reading Teacher (Middle Grade)


Many middle school teachers are surprised to find that some of their new students have difficulty reading or that they do not know how to read at all. Rarely are teachers trained to address the fundamentals of reading instruction, and most assume that teaching reading is solely the job of elementary level reading teachers. However, today’s middle grades teachers realize that regardless of what subject they teach, they must adopt the attitude that any child with a reading disability becomes one thing: their responsibility.
