Free Webinar on Reading Comprehension

On Thursday, January 28, at 7:00 p.m., Weekly Reader will offer a free webinar, the second in its Teaching Reading to Today's Wired Kids series. Titled "A Fresh Look at Reading Comprehension Instruction," the 40-minute live webinar will be led by Rachel Etienne, director of teacher training and curriculum at the Urban Education Exchange. The webinar continues Weekly Reader's ongoing series featuring experts presenting explicit strategies that help teach reading comprehension and improve literacy.

To sign up, interested participants can visit the webpage. The webinars will be archived as an ongoing resource for educators. The first webinar in the series took place in November and was titled "Using Tech Tools to Improve Literacy Instruction: K-6."
