Why and How to Bring Structured Literacy and the Science of Reading into Every Classroom
Nov 10, 2021 6:30-7:30 pm
Join us for a presentation and discussion with Margie Gillis, president of Literacy How, on how to transform San Francisco public schools from one of the lowest performing California school districts for reading into one of the best. Whether your child or school is struggling, or you’re an educator or administrator trying to turn things around, or you just want to help the district succeed, you’ll want to hear Ms. Gillis’ evidence-based recommendations for reading success. Every child in SFUSD has the ability to learn to read well, and our outcomes should reflect this truth.
