In this webinar (which originally aired on October 25, 2016), Susan Lambert (Vice President of PreK–5 English Language Arts, Amplify, former principal, curriculum director, and Core Knowledge Foundation consultant) explains why knowledge matters to long-term learning outcomes and what happens when kids collide with engaging, real-world content.
In this clip, Susan explains why both coherent knowledge building within grades as well as across grades is crucial for fostering reading proficiency and engagement in the classroom.
"What we’re trying to do here is both critical for students in terms of helping them understand what they need, and really effective in terms of educating and motivating them in the early literacy process."
