High school special educators in the Downers Grove HS District will participate with Drs. Laura Hedin and Gregory Conderman in professional development activities targeting striving readers with identified disabilities. Teachers will implement reading interventions in both special education resource and co-taught science and history classes with the guidance of the NIU faculty. Changes in student performance on reading measures and observations of teachers’ professional practice will be used to design and evaluate the program.
