Get information you can apply immediately in your work with tweens and teens on expository text. This streaming video course - broken into six digestible sections - will give you strategies and plenty of example activities you can take directly into your treatment sessions to make intervention most effective.

Students in grades 6–12 frequently struggle with both the content and use of academic language. As they move through the secondary grades, they are confronted with increasingly more expository language, as opposed to the mostly narrative language they saw in elementary grades. This course explores the fascinating relationship between these two language structures, which provides a strong basis for our therapeutic interventions as speech-language pathologists. Judy Montgomery provides examples of linking narratives to expository text to ultimately help students successfully use academic language at the secondary level. Montgomery shares strategies to use in different service delivery settings (one-on-one intervention vs. in the classroom).
