Reading to Learn: Creative Supports Beyond 3rd Grade Retention
This webinar takes place on Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014, 2 to 3 p.m. ET.
Sponsored by: Amplify Assessment
Students who aren’t reading well by 3rd grade are four times less likely to graduate high school by age 19, studies show. That’s why 33 states and Washington, D.C., have passed laws intended to ensure proficient reading by 3rd grade. Join D. Ray Reutzel, the director of the Early Childhood Center at Utah State University, and Krista Calvert, the project manager of the Literacy Lab Classroom Cohort in Kansas City, Kansas, for a discussion on going beyond retention to use creative ways to help students cross the bridge from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.”
