From the event website: “MIT Integrated Learning Initiative (MITili) and the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT co-hosting a symposium on literacy and research science to start a meaningful conversation about the achievement gap in reading, and what we can learn from emerging research on how children learn to read. By convening experts in education and neuroscience, we hope to determine new paths toward ensuring students are not only learning to read, but taught to read through more effective, rigorously researched methods.”
