Webinar Alert: Teacher Turnover and the Future of Literacy: How to Hold On
WHAT: Virtual session for K-12 school and district leaders
WHO: Dr. Liz Brooke, CCC-SLP, Chief Learning Officer at Lexia Learning
WHEN: Tuesday, August 2 at 2:00-3:00 PM EDT
The teacher shortage predates the pandemic, but now there’s a new and urgent element to schools’ predicament: the need to accelerate every student’s literacy skills while being short staffed and under resourced. On August 2, Dr. Liz Brooke, Chief Learning Officer for Lexia® Learning, a Cambium Learning® Group company, will discuss the steps that school and district leaders can take to retain teachers, especially literacy educators.
In this edWebinar, Dr. Brooke will examine how schools can continue to improve the literacy skills of every student—not just those in elementary school—when teachers are burned out and missing crucial support. Participants will learn how to ensure that literacy educators are valued, heard, and have access to the Science of Reading knowledge as well as tools that can relieve some of the instructional workload.
Dr. Brooke joined Lexia from the Florida Center for Reading Research in 2010, where she served as the director of interventions. Prior to FCRR, she worked as a speech and language pathologist evaluating students with learning disabilities, a Title I read instructor, and a first-grade classroom teacher. There is no cost to attend the webinar, but registration is required. For more information, please go to https://home.edweb.net/webinar/teacherhelp20220802
