Science of Reading Week Podcast: What Neuroscience Can Teach Us About Equity
In discussions surrounding the science of reading, implementation and classroom best practices often sit at the forefront. It can be easy to forget that the neuroscience behind learning how to read is also a key component in understanding the science of reading. In fact, having a clear understanding of how the human brain learns to read can help educators better support their students—especially those who are multilingual learners.
Join Kerri Larkin, senior education advisor at Lexia®, as she facilitates a discussion with Horacio Sanchez, educational consultant and one of the nation’s leading authorities on the neuroscience behind the science of reading, and Maya Goodall, senior director of Emergent Bilingual curriculum at Lexia and founder of Lingual Learning. In this webinar, Sanchez and Goodall discuss exactly what happens in our brains when we learn how to read, how multilingual learners’ brains learn to read, and how factors like poverty contribute to students’ learning abilities in the classroom.
