MTSS is a data-driven prevention framework that uses screening and progress monitoring assessments to identify and support the individual learning needs of students. But how can MTSS be used specifically to improve learning outcomes in mathematics? (more…)
Learning to read and developing as a reader is more complicated in a language you are simultaneously learning to speak and understand than in a language you already know well orally. This is one of the most significant challenges faced by millions of English learners (ELs) who are not in bilingual programs, as well as by their teachers.
During this recorded webinar Dr. Claude Goldenberg shares:
Children do more than grow, they develop. They change both qualitatively and quantitatively over time to become themselves. More factors play a role in this development than we can possibly conceive of or measure, but some play a larger role than others. During this on-demand webinar, Dr. Steve Dykstra, a clinical psychologist for Milwaukee County, unpacks the uniquely essential role that language and literacy play in the process of child development in the modern world, and how language and literacy interact with other factors that drive healthy development.

In 2018, Emily Hanford began an investigation into reading instruction in the U.S. Her reporting for American Public Media added fuel to a long-simmering debate about phonics-based instruction versus a whole language approach to teaching reading. During this on-demand webinar Ms. Hanford takes a deep dive into what she’s learned, including:
Students with mild to moderate dyslexia can be well served in the general education setting provided that literacy instruction is explicit, systematic and evidence-based. Join Dr. Carrie Thomas Beck, former Dyslexia Specialist for the Oregon Department of Education, and Dr. Dale Webster in this on-demand webinar to gain a deeper understanding of the characteristics of dyslexia and other types of word reading difficulties and instructional practices that will help students with these reading challenges become strong readers. (more…)
Science has shown that systematic, explicit instruction is the necessary foundation for all students, including those with word reading difficulties such as dyslexia, to become strong readers. If you want to build your knowledge of the science of reading and the five critical components of reading instruction, then watch this free on-demand webinar for a sneak peek inside the Online Elementary Reading Academy.

Spelling is a key component of reading instruction. Yet, in a time of spell check and LOL, the importance of spelling is often short changed. Learning to spell is essentially a language learning process. We do not remember words simply as strings of letters. Teaching spelling involves teaching about language — its phonemes, graphemes, syllable structures, morphemes, and syntactic structures — and showing students why words are spelled the way they are.
During this hour long webinar, Dr. Louisa Moats discusses:
Jasmine Lane is a first generation college graduate and an early-career High School English teacher in Minnesota. In her short time in the classroom, and through her own personal history, Ms. Lane knows all too well the negative and life-long impact that poor literacy skills have on students. In her blog, “Literacy: The Forgotten Social Justice Issue,” Ms. Lane shares that her grandfather, Willie Lane, did not learn to read until he was in his 30s because he would have been “attacked, threatened, or possibly murdered for daring to be a Black Man reading in the Jim Crow south.”
Linda Diamond, president of CORE and author of the Teaching Reading Sourcebook, sat down with Ms. Lane, just a few short weeks after her beloved grandfather passed away, to talk further about how today’s failure to apply the science of reading to instruction continues to put young people, particularly those who have been marginalized and traditionally underserved, at a disadvantage and ill equipped to reach their full potential.

Pivot Learning and UnboundEd have created a free Equity Reset Toolkit that provides district leadership teams resources for a nine-week data collection and analysis process focused on equitable learning recovery in K-12 ELA and math. Download the toolkit to create a data-driven equitable education recovery plan for restructuring or building systems to support equitable ELA and math instruction that can be adapted for in-person, remote, or blended learning.
Watch this hour-long on-demand webinar to learn how to use the Equity Reset Toolkit to discover unfinished instruction needs as a result of school closures and how to develop a plan to address these needs equitably. (more…)
