Webcast will spotlight adult literacy
| Aug 27, 2010
A free live webcast to be sponsored 1:30-3:00 p.m. EST on September 1 by the National Institute for Literacy will examine "Getting Reading Results in the Classroom: What Research Tells Us." Three adult literacy research scientists--Daphne Greenberg of Georgia State University, Charles (Skip) MacArthur of the University of Delaware, and Daryl Mellard of the University of Kansas--will discuss their research projects and the implications for evidence-based reading instruction. During the discussion, the panel of reasearchers will summarize their respective projects and include information about study participants, the nature of instructional interventions, and findings from their studies. Brett Miller of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development will moderate the discussion.
The webcast is intended for adult literacy practitioners but is open to anyone. To register, click here. The webcast organizers encourage participants to confirm that their computers and Internet firewalls are able to support the webcast.
