We know what it takes to teach students to read proficiently, yet nearly two-thirds of fourth graders in the U.S. still struggle with literacy. It’s time to trust the proof and embrace the truth. Join us for a candid conversation with Nick Nanton, a 22-time Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker, as we take a closer look at one of his most impactful and critically acclaimed projects, The Truth About Reading. This isn’t just another discussion about the literacy crisis—this is a behind-the-scenes look at the personal impacts of educational policies and practices. Because behind every label and every initiative, there is a person with a story that needs to be heard.

In this third session of CORE Learning’s Structured Literacy and Language Diversity Week: Spring ’24 Series, we’re taking the discussion to the next level by exploring how language diversity impacts equitable literacy instruction. This edWebinar provides you not only with the inspiration but also with the resources to fully understand the complete picture of equitable literacy instruction and make meaningful changes in your classrooms.

The truth about reading is that we need to move beyond awareness and turn our knowledge into action for a brighter and more inclusive educational future for all learners. Join the movement. This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-12 teachers, school leaders, and district leaders.
