Embracing the Science of Reading

This event has passed.

Researchers have long examined how the brain learns to read and what this means for reading instruction. However, many faculty and staff are unaware of this research and its implications for the classroom. Supportive and knowledgeable school leadership is also critical to ensuring the lasting success of any initiative. But division heads do not always have a background in reading instruction and are often lacking the same knowledge their faculty are. As a result, more than half of today’s fourth grade students struggle to reach reading proficiency, and independent schools are failing to provide high-quality reading instruction to students, diminishing the value of an independent school education.

This webinar is designed to build school consensus around the importance of a science-based approach to reading instruction. We will explore the most up-to-date research on reading instruction and will discuss how brain imaging has provided a clearer understanding of how students learn to read.
