What do teachers do in Hoot Reading lessons?
Hoot Reading Teachers work with individual students to assess their needs as a reader. Students of all ages may need support in decoding simple and multisyllabic words by strengthening their knowledge of sound-spelling correspondences. Alternatively or additionally, students may need to work on their reading comprehension by bolstering their vocabularies, building their repertoire of knowledge across topic areas, diving deeper into syntax and language structures, or improving their reading fluency to enable stronger text analysis.
Teachers have access to content and tools in the Hoot Reading app, including the Hoot Reading Assessment and over 2,000 decodable and complex multi-genre texts that prioritize diverse characters, storylines, and authors.
