COURSE DESCRIPTION

We know that literacy, the ability to read, write, and understand, is the cornerstone of our society- it impacts the way in which people interact with their world. Literacy brings enlightenment, empowerment, and a sense and element of power. We also know that literacy instruction, education, and empowerment is inconsistently provided and supported, particularly in minority populated areas. In this webinar, we will explore equity issues in literacy education and reflect on practices through which we can all build equity within literacy experiences in order to encourage and empower each child in our society to reach their highest potential.
