Please join us on Friday, January 11, 2008 for Part 2 of "From Assessment to
Practice: Research-Based Approaches to Teaching Reading to Adults" webcast.
This follow-up webcast will focus on specific instructional strategies for
two other components of reading, fluency and vocabulary. The presenters will
show how all four components provide a natural framework for assessing adult
students' reading ability, and how assessment results can lead seamlessly to
a program of instruction to improve students' reading.

This seventy-minute webcast is a part two for the webcast presented on
September 28, 2007: From Assessment to Practice-Research-Based Approaches to
Teaching Reading to Adults
<http://www.nifl.gov/nifl/webcasts/assesspractice/webcast0928.html>. The
main purpose of the first webcast was to present a compelling rationale for
the use of research-based principles for adult reading instruction. The
presenters used two components of reading, word analysis and comprehension,
as examples to illustrate research-based practices, focusing on specific
instructional strategies derived from the research.
