On-Demand Webinar
Casualties of War: Reading Science Denial and Racism's Impact on African American Children

We hope you enjoy this webinar with Kareem Weaver, Member, NAACP Oakland Branch’s Education Committee. This webinar examines the importance of direct, explicit instruction to teach all students, even those with reading difficulties such as dyslexia, to be strong readers. Kareem also delves into the impact of out-of-school factors, low expectations, and inadequate teacher preparation on African American student achievement.

If you’d like assistance in preparing your staff to more effectively teach reading to all students, including those with dyslexia, get in touch. CORE works with both preK-12 general and special education teachers and paraprofessionals to build their instructional skills through targeted, job-embedded professional learning based on the science of reading. Take a look at the gains in reading achievement other schools and districts have achieved with CORE’s on-site workshops and instructional coaching.
