The Younger the Better: How Early Childhood Education Can Prepare California’s Students for Reading Success

Early Childhood

Catching literacy issues early is the key to creating lifelong readers; Early Childhood Educators are the first line of offense. Early identification and early literacy intervention are key to improving student outcomes, but the truth is—many educators do not graduate from college equipped with the tools they need to address the literacy learning challenges these students face. This eye-opening presentation will explore this problem as well as solutions and will share strategies that can be used immediately in the classroom to facilitate young students’ literacy learning.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to improve literacy instruction for English learners
  • Ways to use district-adopted curriculum more effectively
  • Strategies that empower teachers to meet the needs of all learners

This webinar will discuss the challenges early childhood educators face, as well as the methods and strategies that have been proven effective in preparing young students including English learners and at-risk students in pre-kindergarten and beyond.
