Fannie Lou Leads on Engaging High School Readers
Teachers at Fannie Lou work from the strongly held belief that young people are most empowered when they are deeply literate.

Working with High School Readers: A Digital Exploration
 is an exciting new iBook featuring interactive video and text exploring decoding, fluency, and comprehension. These are the things that students struggle with over and over in the classroom. High school teachers are usually not prepared to identify these elements of reading or to work with them. Most students who struggle have elements of readings; they just can’t knit them together into robust adult reading. It’s not that students can’t read, think or question; it’s just that some of the machinery is not working smoothly. What should high school teachers do about it? 

This iBook was created by teachers at Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School in collaboration with a literacy specialist from the Perceptual Development Center (PerDev) in New York as they worked with high school readers to analyze their reading and support the development of more robust adult readers.
