 Why Aren't They Reading? Understanding How Implicit Bias Affects Student Development Webinar

Time & Location

Jan 17, 1:00 PM EST


About the Event

This thought-provoking webinar asks educators to reflect on how their  own implicit biases might be contributing to the gap in reading  achievement. When educators rely on assumptions and observations without  objective data, they risk underestimating some learners and  undersupporting others. We explore how objective cognitive screening can  be used in elementary school to ensure all students receive the right  levels of support and enrichment for fluent reading.
