Teacher background knowledge is a key component to successful reading intervention. Really Great Reading offers different training options to provide teachers and literacy professionals with the background knowledge in phonics and phonemic awareness that they’ll need to successfully diagnose, group, and teach  struggling readers. Even if you don’t use Phonics Blitz or Phonics Boost, our professional development will offer you valuable techniques for helping struggling readers. Our options include:


Really Great Reading offers half-day, one-day and two-day workshops throughout the country.


One and Two-day Workshops

Our open workshops include hands-on, activity driven professional development. Your staff will leave the workshop with practical strategies, word lists and techniques to help your adolescent struggling readers. These wonderful workshop are chock full of strategies to help struggling readers practice what good readers do naturally, which is pay attention to every word, read with a high rate of accuracy, and use strategies for attacking unfamiliar and multi-syllables words.
