Literacy Culture Change: A Case Example

Wednesday, August 4 | 2:00 p.m. (CT)

Changing a school’s literacy culture is difficult, especially when the change requires a deep examination of the weaknesses of an existing program. This webinar will explore a real-life example of how a school was able to make the shift from viewing the teaching of reading through a whole language lens to one of evidence and science. Participants will learn how the school made a systematic change in reading philosophy and adopted the components of an effective literacy program in just one year. The discussion will include an in-depth examination of student outcomes before and after the year of change.
