Accelerate Learning Outcomes with the Science of Reading
After two decades of brain development research, the Science of Reading is still underutilized in districts across the country. Join cognitive neuroscientist, Vera Blau-McCandliss, Ph.D. for an informative webinar as we explore this research:
- Discover: How evidence-based literacy instruction practices based on the Science of Reading have been shown to be successful in improving reading achievement.
- Discuss: Ways phonics and phonemic awareness instruction through multisensory, game-based learning accelerates critical reading development.
- Implement: How school leaders can help teachers optimize instructional time and build foundational literacy skills that will positively impact the learners in their districts for years to come.
