Regional Educational Service Agency

Due to structural issues, the Georgia Dept. of Transportation has closed a bridge on the Daisy Nevils Hwy (click location below to see map).

This closure will impact people traveling to FDRESA from many districts in our service area. Those that typically travel on Hwy 301 N toward Statesboro and turn off on Caddie Green Road (or Mosley Rd.) outside of Claxton will need to find an alternate route. The same goes for those driving north from Daisy or south from Nevils.

Strategies for the Struggling Middle School Readers: Putting the Pieces of the Puzzle Together

August 22, 2017 - 09:00 AM

See details for available seats

Reading Teachers in grades 6-8 face unique challenges addressing the needs of struggling readers. This offering is designed for the Cohort 1 participants that attended the Addressing Middle School Reading Deficiencies by Lexile Bands sessions provided in 2016-2017.

The intent of this professional learning opportunity is to answer the question, “How will I bring the pieces of the small group puzzle together?”  Knowing that our Cohort 1 teachers understand the instructional needs of students reading in Lexile bands 300-500, 500-800, and 800-1000, this session will explore how to effectively engage students in small groups designed to promote and build literacy skills.
