Details: The launch of NYC Reads, DOE's new literacy program based around the "Science of Reading" has raised many challenges, including how to communicate to families these new changes in curriculum and how it will impact their children. Join InsideSchools and Education Trust-New York for a virtual event discussing NYC’s reading reform efforts in K-5 schools. Explore the science of reading, statewide policy impact, and insights from educators, advocates and a parent on improving children's reading skills. Panelists will focus on best practices in informing families about these changes and providing guidance on supporting their children in reading, especially the City’s most marginalized children.
