Wednesday, March 20th, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Success in school, employment, and life is
utterly dependent on being literate. And yet, the children living in Chicago’s
poorest neighborhoods are struggling to access what is one of the most
important human rights – the ability to read and write.
All children can learn how to read. They just need the proper support. In communities where children experience the adversities of poverty and violence, an individualized and trauma-informed approach to teaching literacy is essential.
This panel discussion will share and explore how
practitioners are reshaping reading from a source of stress to a source of
comfort and empowerment.
This virtual panel is free and open to the public. It is an opportunity to connect with thought leaders from across Chicago and address the issues facing our city. Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
We look forward to seeing you!
