Access to a full and meaningful education starts with the mastery of the most essential foundational skill—reading. Yet so many children aren’t proficient readers, and marginalized populations are even more likely to read below grade level.
Join Zaner-Bloser September 29 for an informative and impactful webinar, Literacy, Equity & Representation in Texts for Children, with author and educator JaNay Brown-Wood, PhD. Brown-Wood invites educators to explore the connections she makes as she discusses equity, literacy rates across the U.S., development of literacy skills, and the importance of diversity and representation in books and other texts for children. She will also share about her work as an author and advocate striving to help children find themselves on the pages of books, as well as offer some considerations for adults who play an integral role in helping children become lifelong readers and writers.
