Tamara Konrade is joined by ESSDACK literacy specialist, Jane Seward, for a conversation about the connection between literacy and language. Some key points of discussion include:
• using research and data to change instructional practices
• the definition of “reading”
• the important role of language comprehension in reading comprehension
