  • Empower educators and researchers to work collaboratively toward promoting reading achievement for all students. 

Organized by The Windward Institute, a division of The Windward School, this webinar provides an interactive platform to discuss the September 2020 publication of Translational Science: A Road Map for the Science of Reading, and it is designed to bring educators and researchers together to promote achievement for all students. Attendees will leave the roundtable with actionable, effective practices and pedagogy to support all learners as well as insight into the Science of Reading and evidence-based reading instruction.
