Presented by Encore Boston: Pandemic Worsens Youth Literacy: Ways You Can Help
December 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST
Nearly 70% of fourth graders are not reading at grade level in many communities. That achievement gap will last a lifetime if not addressed. Join Kelly Kulsrud of Lectio Institute, an expert in youth literacy, to learn about the challenge, the impact of the pandemic, and how you can help. Then hear from Wes Enicks of Literations, an intergenerational coaching program that has helped students for over 30 years in Boston, Revere and now Framingham Public Schools. Learn how literacy coaches are trained and supported to ensure success. Offered by Encore Boston Network.
