About this Session

The Science of Reading confirms it: reading proficiency skills begin to develop long before third grade!

In this one-hour webinar, three school leaders from NYC, Chicago, and Fort Worth will share how they are intentionally laying the foundation for better reading outcomes in third grade, for all students.

Hear how they made critical decisions about:

  • Evaluating and selecting the right Pre-K curriculum
  • Developing and implementing professional learning plans for their teams
  • Working across their education systems to improve third grade reading scores

Participants will leave this webinar with practical information and inspiration for building their own pathways to third grade reading proficiency.
