School change is hard…but it can be done! Join us as we talk about what it takes to transform a school’s culture of practice to be more aligned with the scientific evidence base on reading, and why it’s worth the effort. Dr. Heidi Beverine-Curry of The Reading League will share how a single school or entire district can transition successfully to teaching reading based on science, and how that transition can dramatically improve overall literacy and student outcomes.

  • What it takes to transform a school toward alignment with the scientific evidence base on reading
  • Common obstacles and tips for overcoming them
  • Examples of what is possible from The Reading League’s real-life work with schools
