Dr. David Dockterman
October 18, 2016
Duration: 60 Minutes
Literacy performance depends on a collection of the brain’s resources working together like a well-functioning committee. To master the complex components of reading and writing, students must want to succeed, believe that they can, and have the learning dispositions and behaviors that make it all possible. This webinar will consider how to organize the resources and foster the culture necessary to activate and sustain all of the reading brain’s subcommittees—phonologic, semantic, orthographic, executive, and emotional—for engaged, deep learning.
