2/22 - Pre-Symposium Webinar

Dr. Lakeisha Johnson, one of our original symposium presenters, is unfortunately unable to travel to Philadelphia to join us on March 13. Instead, Dr. Johnson has generously agreed to host a pre-symposium webinar event that we hope you will attend as we launch into our symposium discussion around reading comprehension.
