Reading to Learn: Creative Supports Beyond 3rd Grade Retention
Students who aren't reading well by 3rd grade are four times less likely to graduate high school by age 19, studies 
show. That's why 33 states and Washington, D.C., have passed 
laws intended to ensure proficient reading by 3rd grade. Join 
D. Ray Reutzel, the director of the Early Childhood Center at Utah 
State University, and Krista Calvert, the project manager of the 
Literacy Lab Classroom Cohort in Kansas City, Kansas, for a 
discussion on going beyond retention to use creative ways to 
help students cross the bridge from "learning to read" to 
"reading to learn."
Underwriting for the content of this webinar is provided by The 
William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
Guests:
Krista Calvert, project manager, Literacy Lab Classroom Cohort, 
Kansas City, Kan.
D. Ray Reutzel, distinguished professor and director, Early 
Childhood Center, Utah State University
