For decades, researchers have been observing instructional practices, gathering data, and analyzing student outcomes to provide insight on best practices and methods for reaching students at all levels. Yet, student academic achievement is below our collective expectations. What can we learn from science to ensure all our students perform at grade level? In this edWebinar, Dr. Gabi Bell Jiménez discusses the Science of Reading. How can we use the Science of Reading to ensure students thrive, and to inspire us and amplify student outcomes?
This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
