Early literacy performance has remained flat in Georgia and across the country even as more instructional time has been dedicated to reading at the expense of science. How can we help students learn to read without sacrificing their opportunity to learn about the world around them? How can we view science as part of the literacy solution rather than as a competing demand? Join this important session Thursday, July 14th, 9:00-10:00 am, to hear from voices in the field about their challenges and successes in leveraging science learning to support and enhance early literacy. Gain insights for your own classroom and learn to speak up for science as our state engages in a renewed policy discussion about the best way to help Georgia’s children learn to read. This panel is part of our ongoing series of discussions and professional learning to support Science for Georgia’s work to improve literacy in Georgia. Visit georgiascienceteacher.org to see an updated list of panelists for the event. This virtual panel discussion will be hosted on Zoom and will provide an opportunity for you to engage with our panelists through Q&A. Zoom information will be provided to individuals who RSVP for the event.
