3/1 - Building Equity in Literacy

Kristine Burgess

Tuesday, March 1, 2022, at 4 p.m. Eastern

REGISTER HERE

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.

Linda Gross

REGISTRATION COMING SOON

This webinar will examine how paraprofessionals and educators can work collaboratively to build students’ metacognitive, executive function, and study skills. More specifically, we will review ways paraprofessionals can foster students’ self-awareness and guide them to more independently implement strategies. We will also explore how educators can effectively utilize paraprofessionals in the classroom for tasks such as small group instruction and data collection.

Kaia Cunningham & Lauren Murphy
