Join this webinar with Share My Lesson and the Albert Shanker Institute to learn how you can implement the latest reading reform goals to deepen literacy support from Esther Quintero, senior fellow at the Albert Shanker Institute for students this school year.
In recent years, a scientific approach to reading education has gained traction due to the joint efforts of educators, parents and state leaders. This movement for better reading instruction has helped fuel a wave of legislation to address widespread and persistent reading deficits of American students. Reading difficulties cut across socioeconomic lines, but they disproportionately affect students living in poverty as well as those from Black, brown and Indigenous communities.
Reading Reform Across America, a report released by the Albert Shanker Institute this summer, documents how state legislatures nationwide have responded to these challenges. In this webinar, the report’s authors will describe the findings in ways that will help educators understand what to expect from state legislative action. Educators will also learn what priorities can be implemented without waiting for their state to act.
