When teaching a class full of students with diverse backgrounds, multiple home languages and varying literacy levels, the challenge for teachers is finding the best way to reach each student. Danielle Murray, a school-based teacher leader at Gilbert Spruance Elementary School in Philadelphia, specializes in coaching teachers to make sure students have the supports they need to build a strong literacy foundation, whether they are learning in school or from home. On a recent episode of Keystone Education Radio, host Annette Stevenson speaks with Murray on scaffolding literacy instruction using adaptive online programs for English learners, and the remarkable growth and achievement these programs are bringing to students’ thinking and reading abilities.
