Learning to read can be hard. Learning to read in a new language—or simultaneously in two languages—can be even harder. How can you, as teachers and school leaders, best support your multilingual learners?

Explore how you can help your multilingual learners succeed with Education Week Reporter Sarah Schwartz and her guests—experts in reading science and multilingual literacy—as they discuss what the research says and what it means for multilingual learners in classrooms adopting a science of reading-based approach.

Dive into the concerns that some multilingual literacy experts have as more states start to adopt policies that mandate the “science of reading” in early elementary classrooms, and why other researchers are saying that these changes may benefit multilingual learners, too. You’ll also look at evidence-based approaches for teaching multilingual children and gain insights into the unique supports they need to thrive.
