Connecticut Early Literacy Presentation

April 13, 2015

The Connecticut Council for School Reform asked me to speak in Hartford, on April 9, 2015. My presentation reviewed and responded to some of the complaints or concerns about teaching young children to read, and considered several issues in expanding preschool literacy opportunities. My presentation was based largely on the Report of the National Early Literacy Panel and a handful of other individual studies that I wanted to highlight. See the PowerPoint here.
