In response to the urgent need to translate reading science for K-12 educators, Virginia Tech is hosting six webinars on timely, educational topics. The goal of the series, entitled Virginia Educators Applying Reading Science (VEARS), is to clearly and succinctly interpret research in ways that are directly applicable to the classroom. 

This fall, in response to the requests of educators, there will be two offerings for secondary teachers in middle/high schools. Each webinar targets a specific strategy or series of techniques. The webinars minimize “theories,” and emphasize pragmatic “How-tos” taken directly from applied studies. VEARS webinars will connect teachers to research-proven strategies that they can use in their classrooms immediately. [Note.  Each webinar is a stand alone offering. There is no need to take all 6 webinars.
