Teachers Help Children Improve Reading
The F-CAT scores were higher this year then they were last year and teachers are making sure it stays that way. Over 500 teachers from 80 schools in 10 different school districts attended the Florida Reading Initiative in Lake City Monday.
It's a program designed to provide tools and strategies to teachers to provide their students with better reading instruction.
Components of the academy include five areas of reading, assessment, reading and writing connection, reading in the content area, and effective instruction in the 90-minute reading block.
"It's a k-12 school wide reform effort where teachers come together and are trained for 1 week about reading," says Sabrina Crosby with N.E. Florida Educational Consortium. "They learn about the process and strategies that can help them help their students to read."
The training will run until Friday.
