The Case for Reading Practice: Why It Matters & How the Best Get It Done

Run time: 57:02

Reading is probably the hardest thing we teach people to do in our education system (Whitman & Goldberg, 2008). It’s also one of the most important skills we teach. It takes practice, yet some mistakenly call daily reading practice “just reading.”

Join us for this free webinar to see the research support for effective independent reading practice and learn proven strategies from top educators for finding the time and doing it right. Participants will:

  • Learn how to transform “just reading” into deliberate practice
  • Tap into the power of reading to build vocabulary and reservoirs of prior knowledge
  • Hear how innovative educators make time for reading practice
  • See how Accelerated Reader 360® supports both independent and close reading

Presenters:

Gene Kerns, EdD, is Chief Academic Officer at Renaissance and a nationally acclaimed speaker on learning progressions, K–12 assessments, and educational standards. He is co-author of the new book Unlocking Student Talent: The New Science of Developing Expertise.

Jan Bryan, EdD, is Vice President and National Education Officer at Renaissance. A former classroom teacher, she presents regularly on literacy development, formative assessment, and cognitive and non-cognitive aspects of learning.
