Merit Question and Answer
Can’t Wait for Reading Assessment Results. Need Help Now.


Area of Concern: Reading Comprehension

Submitted by: Teacher

Grade Level: High School

Competency: At Level

Our students have trouble with reading comprehension – reading stories and understanding what they’re about…not just the younger kids but high school students and even the adults that I teach at a local college. My goal is to have some way to help them with their literacy skills instead of having wait to get NWEA testing results that tell me that they are going to fail the language arts and reading sections anyway. How can you help me?
