Webinar on Cultural and Academic Literacy

Education Week is having a webinar titled “Standing On Common Ground: Building Cultural and Academic Literacy.”  The webinar will be held on September 26, from 2-3 ET. The description:

Being literate in the information age increases our understanding of cultural and linguistic differences. Developing our students’ academic literacy skills and building their cultural knowledge are critical keys to these understandings. Pearson’s iLit is a comprehensive literacy solution designed to produce two or more years of reading growth in a single year. Based on a proven instructional model that has produced results for students in districts across the country for more than a decade, iLit has been carefully crafted to meet the rigors of the Common Core State Standards and to prepare students for success. In this webinar, Sharroky Hollie, executive director for the Center for Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning, will discuss strategies for engaging students in developing the types of literacy needed for future success, and how iLit provides an effective way of implementing these strategies.
