Each week we tackle a new problem that you sent in. Then, we match that problem with a teaching tool that can help. This week's problem is from Los Angeles, CA sent to us from Angela Bae, a literacy coach.

Problem of the Week  –  We've all been there. We are sitting with a student and are left struggling to figure out what to teach him or her! This week's problem focuses on teaching and conferring with higher level readers. It's the struggle to know what to teach more proficient readers, especially if we don't have a ton of background knowledge on reading strategies, skills or literary practices.
