Limited Capacity filling up

Join us to learn how the Republic Elementary Academic Team implemented the most recent research on the science of reading in early elementary classrooms. The implementation model shared in this session will encompass the use of the research to plan professional learning for classroom teachers to launch pilot classrooms that paved the way for system wide implementation. The system wide approach begins in preschool classrooms with implementation through second grade. Participants will also get to experience a phonemic awareness lesson.
