Ashford Assessing Evidence Based Reading Practices Paper




Assignment: Assessing Specialized Instructional Strategies for Teaching

Evidence-based reading practices can be adapted to work at any level and in any content area for students with a range of diverse exceptionalities. Instructional strategies, even those in basal readers and text, are often not based on the most current reading research. As a result, it is the responsibility of the classroom teacher and special education leader to study and assess whether a strategy is evidence-based.

For this Assignment, you will explore topics in literacy/reading in depth, shared in the articles selected. Based on your area of literacy interest, you will have the opportunity to select two evidence-based literacy/reading practices appropriate for the age, grade, and disability level chosen and provide an analysis of each.
