Struggling Adolescent Readers with Anita Archer
Middle school is a critical period for students facing reading failure. It is in grades six through eight that struggling readers may fall seriously behind their peers, jeopardizing their chances for success in high school and beyond. Yet, despite the importance of their task, middle school teachers are often forced to use reading curricula that are outdated, impractical, or simply do not work.

During this three-day conference, Dr. Anita Archer will help participants master the most current research-validated strategies for increasing fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and decoding skills.

Dr. Anita Archer serves as an educational consultant to school districts on effective reading and writing instruction, classroom management, and design of effective literacy programs. She is nationally known for her work on instructional procedures and design and is the recipient of eight Outstanding Educator awards. In addition, Dr. Archer has taught at San Diego State University, the University of Washington, and the University of Oregon.
