Reading is the language of our classrooms and the key to accessing information. Shifting to structured literacy involves knowledge acquisition and commitment, but the shift is essential for raising reading proficiency in our schools, particularly in grades TK-2.

View this edWebinar with Express Readers CEO and Founder, Elise Lovejoy, to learn about the latest research, the cognitive science of how students learn to read, successful case studies in shifting school culture, and how to revise the structure of reading to provide all students with success.

During this session, you are given a roadmap for effective ways to:

  • Transition reading methodology
  • Educate and support teachers through the process
  • Evaluate appropriate and comprehensive programs to implement

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to administrators and school leaders as well as teachers of the TK-2 grades.


Elise LovejoyAbout the Presenter

Elise Lovejoy is the founder and CEO of Express Readers, a TK-2nd grade foundational skills and reading program. Express Readers’ mission is to provide the highest quality of resources and the fullest extent of teacher support, all with the outcome of higher literacy rates and more engaged readers—anchored in the belief that “every child deserves to learn to read.” Elise holds a BA and an MA in elementary education with 15+ years of experience in the classroom, grades K-2nd grade. Frustrated at the lack of phonics books and resources created by educators who understand realistic applications in classrooms, she now works with teachers across the country to create phonics books based on the immense body of research on how students learn to read, with complete stories and a sense of humor.
