In this webinar, we will hear from educators who are implementing SIPPS as a way to swiftly and effectively support K–3 students’ mastery of foundational skills. Educators will share about the best practices that underlie high-quality, effective foundational skills instruction for our youngest students, the implications to providing a structured literacy approach to foundational skills, and the outcomes for students as confident, automatic, and accurate readers. Featured panelists include:
