Literacy Symposium Friday Keynote - Discovering the Science of Reading: A Reporter’s Story[/quote] ... e=emb_logo

Emily Hanford has been an education reporter for more than a decade and she didn’t know anything about how children learn to read until a few years ago. In this keynote, Emily will tell the story of how she became interested in the science of reading and share what she’s learned from researchers, teachers, and parents across the country. It’s a shocking story about a huge gap between research and practice. But a hopeful story, too, because of what can be done to help more children learn to read better.
