Use Brain Science to Make Dramatic Gains in Special Ed
Presenter: Martha S. Burns, Ph.D. and Kelly Winnett, Blount Co, AL
"What can you do that hasn’t already been done?” That’s what an Alabama principal asked himself when his 5th graders were still struggling after multiple interventions. He decided to try a breakthrough technology that uses the principles of neuroplasticity – the ability of the brain to rewire and improve – to target literacy and cognitive skills, and it made all the difference. Join us for an exclusive webinar with neuroscientist, Dr. Martha Burns, and special guest Kelly Winnett of Blount County, AL. Dr. Burns will share the latest research on the brain and learning (especially in students who struggle) and Mrs. Winnett will share how the Fast ForWord program has helped her students in special education make tremendous growth (AYP!) - in some cases moving learners from non-readers to readers and from non-verbal to verbal.
Building Rich Vocabularies
Presenter: Timothy Rasinski, Ph.D.
For students to understand what they are reading, they need to read fluently and understand the meaning of the words they encounter in their reading. Research has demonstrated that vocabulary, along with fluency, are major factors in students' reading development and that many students have not achieved sufficient mastery in these areas. In this webinar Dr. Timothy Rasinski will share his thoughts and practical ideas for making vocabulary instruction engaging and effective.
