The U.S. Department of Education’s ED COVID-19 Handbook highlights tutoring as a key approach for supporting student academic needs. Tutoring can also be used to address the impact of lost instructional time because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Schools and districts can use funds from the American Rescue Plan to implement high-quality tutoring.
In this third webinar of a three-part series on high-quality tutoring, presenters will share an overview of best practices from research in K-12 tutoring, describe how math and reading goals are addressed in the context of a tutoring program, and provide an example of implementing a reading tutoring program from a district in California.
- Learn about research findings and best practices related to systematic tutoring, focused on math and reading outcomes
- Explore key issues about delivery of reading and math tutoring interventions, including tutor selection, instructional content, assessment of student progress, and tutor oversight
- Hear examples of reading and mathematics tutoring as designed by one national service tutoring program and as implemented program personnel at one district
- Ask questions and receive resources to guide their own work
