Dr. Pat O’Connor and Dr. Bill Bintz from Kent State University will be joined by Renee Murray of the Southern Regional Education Board as they share their expertise on the critical topic of adolescent literacy. Educators at the middle and high school levels will learn techniques to assist their struggling readers in learning important reading skills, no matter what content area they teach.
