Studies show that parental involvement is highly correlated with student success, but convincing a reluctant, struggling, or discouraged reader to read outside of the school day is often difficult. In this highly practical session, join Terry Dobson and Heather Baptie as they show how you can help eliminate homework battles with a blend of traditional and digital tools. They will share a "tradigital" tool box of easy-to-implement strategies and resources can be used at home or at school to build confidence, develop literacy skills, and foster a love of reading.
