We hope you enjoy this webinar with Dr. Julie A. Washington, Professor of Psychology Georgia State University. The webinar is full of information about characteristics of African American English, the impact of poverty on language, the relationship of dialect to growth of reading, and implications for the classroom.
If you’d like assistance in preparing your staff to more effectively teach reading to all students, including those who speak African American English, 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. Take a look at the gains in reading achievement other schools and districts have achieved with CORE’s on-site workshops and instructional coaching.
