The Reading Brain: Building Students' Reading Muscles in the Digital Age

The digital age has changed the types of text that both students and teachers encounter as well as how they interact with them. In this ILA Webinar, Gilda De La Cruz and Carol Jago will explore insights from neuroscience about the reading brain, particularly the ways in which technology has affected deep reading. Participants will learn methods for helping young readers pay closer attention to what they read—strategies that will not only improve background knowledge, vocabulary, and comprehension but also foster positive lifelong learning and reading habits.

Who should register: School-based educators, principals, teacher educators, and preservice teachers
