Teacher Preparedness:
Who is Confident Teaching Reading and Spelling?

Monday, April 23, 2018  |  3:00 p.m. ET


Teachers matter more to student achievement than any other aspect of schooling. However, many teachers are not well prepared to teach all students to read, including those who struggle. In this insightful presentation, nationally recognized literacy expert Dr. Louisa Moats explores why this problem still exists and what we can do about it. She will also share why preservice training is insufficient and how it leads to a lack of confidence for many teachers.

Dr. Moats will discuss:

  • The disciplinary knowledge necessary to be confident (and effective)
  • The dynamic interconnection of reading development, structure of language, and assessment of individual differences
  • How to help educators become confident (and effective) teachers of reading, spelling, and language
  • Why considerable breadth and depth of subject matter knowledge is necessary to teach explicitly

Register today to learn how innovative teacher training can change the literacy success of students.
