Twitter Chat Recap: Supporting striving readers with Stephanie Harvey & Annie Ward

In case you missed it, last night we hosted a #FromStrivingToThriving Twitter chat on @ScholasticTeach with literacy specialists Stephanie Harvey, President of Stephanie Harvey Consulting, and Annie Ward, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction for the Mamaroneck Union Free School District in Westchester County, NY.

Throughout the hour, we asked Steph and Annie about strategies for supporting striving readers—inexperienced readers who typically lack positive experiences with reading—including how to foster curiosity, the importance of access and choice, and tips for effective book-matching.
