How are we, as educators going to accommodate our new era in education, especially with Universal TK/PreK and Expanded Learning Opportunities Programs responsibilities being added to an already overwhelmed educational System?   Teaching children to read and engage in the learning process, especially Latinx and high-risk students, are some of the most fundamental goals for early learners, not only in school, but in our communities, and especially in the home.   Our workshop conversation will take a critical examination of research, data, and results that are relevant to teaching effective phonics and reading in the context of Scarborough’s Reading Rope and how that approach compares to the newly released research from The National Committee for Effective Literacy. We will explore how we ensure that English learners and emergent bilinguals leave school as proficient readers and writers in English and other languages, while honoring their cultural differences.   We’ll share the results and evidence of impact already being employed by transformative county and district leaders to ensure academic, social-emotional, and cultural success for all our children and students.
