Even though many aspects of teaching and learning are changing as a result of the pandemic, the evidence from years of gold-standard research on the Science of Reading remains the same. In this edWebinar, Lexia Learning’s Dr. Suzanne Carreker and Julie Bertram discuss why educators should trust the Science of Reading to inform effective literacy instruction and how this evidence is applied in both the physical and virtual classroom through Structured Literacy.
This edWebinar will highlight the critical importance of recognizing what constitutes Structured Literacy and how using this evidence-based approach will help students of all abilities close literacy gaps—no matter where learning takes place.
This edWebinar will be of interest to preK-12 teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
