Building Bridges Between Literacy Research and Practice: Diverse Perspectives

May 3, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 3:45 pm MDT


EXPERTS: Dr. Shelley Stagg Peterson (OISE/University of Toronto, Canada), Kim Betts (Limestone District School Board, Canada), Mary Ellen Coombs (Huron Perth District School Board, Canada), Carol Doyle Jones (Niagara University, USA), Marianna Dilorio (Toronto District School Board, Canada), Lara Donsky (Toronto District School Board, Canada), Audrey Madsen (Toronto District School Board, Canada), Emily Moorhead (Limestone District School Board, Canada)

The goal of our presentation is to provide evidence from our classrooms on ways to bridge the science of reading-based recommendations of the Right to Read Inquiry’s report with research on literacy teaching and learning.

This panel of teachers and educators, with many decades of experience teaching young children to read and write, will bring diverse perspectives on the roles of oral language, phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, critical literacy, multimodal texts, comprehension, motivation, writing and spelling to literacy learning. We wish to support teachers in continuing to provide equitable literacy learning environments to ensure that all students receive the instruction they deserve.
