STRAND #10: Using Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies (PALs) as a Class-wide Intervention in Grades 2-6

Dr. Kristen McMaster | November 30, 4 pm-December 7, 2015 5:15 pm

Peer Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS) is a research-validated, supplemental, Tier 1 reading program designed for students in grades 2-6 who have basic phonic skills but would benefit from additional fluency and comprehension support. Note: PALS 2-6 is not designed to use in place of core reading instruction. It is especially useful as a supplement to core instruction when class-wide data from universal screening indicates that a significant number (30% or more) fail to reach acceptable benchmark levels. It has also been used as a Tier 2 intervention. Strand #10 will provide an overview of PALS 2-6 and its key components to allow teachers to implement PALS 2-6 in their own classrooms. Webinar sessions are offered every other week to allow participants the opportunity to implement a specific PALS strategy and receive feedback from the presenter.

Intended Audience: Intended for general education teachers in Grades 2-6 whose class-wide data suggests the need for additional fluency and comprehension instruction/support for the majority of students in their classroom and interventionists and/or special education teachers who provide supplemental instruction to students considered at-risk of reading failure.
