Pearson Teacher Education and Development works with leading authors and experts in education to provide you with the best research-based resources and materials to help you meet instructional demands and academic achievement targets for every student. 

What are the strategies you use to help your struggling readers come up to grade level?

Your teaching idea can earn you valuable cash and resources for your classroom.

One of the biggest challenges many teachers face is a wide range of reading abilities amongst their students. Some students read at above level, many at-level, and some are below-level readers. Wherever students are on the spectrum, there's an emphasis in the new Common Core standards that all students are able to read challenging, quality texts. We want to know how you address the performance gap in the classroom.

What are your ideas for:

  • Helping struggling readers improve their skills.
  • Managing different levels of readers in the same classroom.
  • Exposing all students—regardless of reading level—to challenging, quality texts.

Submit your best idea and you could win $100 to use in your classroom and an iPod touch to capture your students in action. Plus, each prize winner will receive a PD library of resources to help overcome performance gaps in literacy.
