Event Date

Sun, 08/01/2010 - 1:00PM EDT


Youth who have low academic skills generally face significant barriers to economic and social success and are more likely to be involved in the juvenile justice system. Improving literacy and numeracy instruction in juvenile justice facility classrooms can be a critical step toward strengthening the academic skills of youth who are incarcerated. National experts and authors of NDTAC’s new literacy and mathematics strategy guides, Drs. Terry Salinger, Peter Leone, and Candace Mulcahy, join NDTAC to discuss recommendations and strategies pertaining to the motivation, assessment, and instruction of youth in short-term juvenile justice facilities. The authors also discuss infrastructure and professional development to support teachers in these settings.
