Text: “Sold a Story: How Teaching Kids to Read Went So Wrong” Podcast by Emily Hanford
Access free podcast: https://features.apmreports.org/sold-a-story/
This exposé hosted by Emily Hanford is about how educators came to believe in an idea about how children learn to read. This idea was proven wrong by cognitive scientists decades ago, but many still hold fast to the ideas behind it. She examines how these ideas make it harder for many students to learn to read. We will look at our own practices as reflective educators with a growth mindset. There may be difficult conversations, but we will approach them with respect for all, as we move forward with new knowledge for the benefit of all students.
Participants must register for each week’s session individually. All participants who register in APLD, listen to the podcast, respond in the Padlet, and attend the podcast study will be given 2-hours PD credit. Certificates will be in APLD and no record of attendance will be emailed.
