Academic Language and School Success: Connecting Reading Research to Classroom Assessment and Instruction
Learning language is important to student success in school as well as later in life. Students who struggle with oral language are four to five times more likely than their peers to have trouble reading. However, research shows that to succeed, students must learn academic language skills in the classroom.
In this webinar, watch and learn from Dr. Liz Brooke, chief education officer, and Carlyn Friedberg, assessment specialist, as they discuss research and academic language as it relates to classroom assessment and school success. There's lots to learn in this webinar, especially for educators who are interested in improving reading scores in their schools. Get started now.
