2005 Summer Institute in Reading
UC Berkeley
Berkeley, CA –

Sponsored the Graduate School of Education, University of California, Berkeley, the 2005 Summer Institute in Reading at the University of California-Berkeley will address two of the primary obstacles to reading proficiency: fluency and vocabulary. The focus of the Institute will be on the instructional strategies the National Reading Panel has identified for building fluency and vocabulary with middle- and high-school students, as well as elementary students. The Institute is intended for educators who are leaders of reading instruction--within state and regional agencies, districts, schools, colleges of education, and publishing companies. Whole- and small-group sessions will recognize issues faced by educators in different educational units, with major speakers and small-group facilitators representing the developmental continuum.
