In the past three years alone, more than two dozen states have mandated that teachers use scientifically proven methods to teach children how to read—methods that most schools haven’t used consistently and are unfamiliar to many teachers.

Experts say these changes have the potential to help millions more children become proficient readers. But how can schools implement such a seismic shift in practice? And will adopting these approaches lead to the improvements promised?

In this webinar, staff writer Sarah Schwartz will share insights from her reporting on schools’ attempts to adopt new practices after the passage of these laws, recent research findings on their effectiveness, and new developments from the 2023 legislative session.
