Event Details

You may have seen recent headlines that mention things like "Science of Reading", "Balanced Literacy", "Reading Wars", and "Sold a Story".  These headlines are referring to recents debates on what is the "right" way to teach reading and a polarizing podcast called "Sold A Story" by Emily Hanford.  The podcast tells the story of reading instruction in America and outlines the impact that trends in reading instruction have had on literacy rates in America.

Please join Dr. Carolyn Mervis & WSA Education Consultant, Robin Pegg as we listen to each of the episodes of the "Sold A Story" podcast and discuss what this means for literacy and learning for individuals with Williams syndrome.
