Explore approaches for supporting adult learners reading at grade level equivalent (GLE) 9–12 in building the skills and strategies required to understand, analyze, evaluate, and synthesize complex content-oriented texts.

These evidence-based reading instruction (EBRI) techniques can be used immediately, whether remotely or in a physical classroom.
