Research to Practice Symposium
Mark Seidenberg To Receive HolliS Scarborough Award at 3/9 SYMPOSIUM
Dr. Mark Seidenberg, author of the book Language at the Speed of Sight, will be this year's recipient of the Hollis Scarborough Award at AIM's 8th annual Research to Practice Symposium on March 9.
The award, presented to and named after Reading Rope creator Dr. Hollis Scarborough for the first time last year, recognizes a researcher whose work on the science of reading acquisition has deepened our understanding of the complexity of reading proficiency and has inspired others to pursue related research.
We look forward to welcoming Dr. Seidenberg, a presenter at our symposium in 2018, back to AIM in March.
"AIM Institute's Research to Practice Symposium is not to be missed. It is both informative and transformative. AIM provides an excellent opportunity for educators to engage with each other at the important intersection of research and practice. As a principal supervisor, I value AIM as a critical forum to help my principals bring important research to the forefront of their teacher's instructional practice."
– Dr. Richard Jeffrey Rhodes, Assistant Superintendent - Neighborhood Network 9, The School District of Philadelphia
