Planet Word 925 13th St NW, Washington, DC

Join us for “Meet the Researcher,” a new series designed to empower educators, academics, and interested adults with knowledge, inspiration, and evidenced-based insights to help end the literacy crisis in America, one student at a time. The first event features renowned researcher and practitioner Dr. Elsa Cárdenas-Hagan, president of the Valley Speech Language and Learning Center in Brownsville, Texas. Dr. Cárdenas-Hagan has written many scholarly articles, curricular programs, and book chapters related to the oracy and literacy development of English learners. Her book Literacy Foundations for English Learners: A Comprehensive Guide to Evidence-Based Instruction is considered the preeminent text on Structured Literacy for English learners, especially effective for students with dyslexia, but also a best practice for all students.
