Here is a great series of 'Webinars on demand' about the 'Science of reading':

Examine the “Why,” “What,” and “How” of the Science of Reading

There is no greater mission for educators than ensuring all students are successful, joyful readers. In recent months and years, the science of reading is finally getting the attention it deserves. Schools across the U.S. are having serious conversations about how to align early reading instruction to the large body of evidence about reading—the most studied aspect of human learning.

To examine the “why,” “what,” and “how” of this important topic, watch the three parts of The Science of Reading webinar series—featuring Laura Stewart—on demand.


Laura Stewart

Laura is an educator and organizational leader. She has served as a teacher, administrator, adjunct professor, and director of numerous professional development initiatives around the country. She was the vice president of professional development for the Rowland Reading Foundation and the chief academic officer for professional development at Highlights for Children.

Laura’s current role as the national director of The Reading League fits her perfectly, as her passion is empowering educators to positively impact all students and ultimately change the course of literacy achievement in the U.S. She presents nationally and internationally and is a published author.
