Early grade reading webinar gathers global education leaders
On October 1st, 2015, URC’s REACH project hosted the “Benchmarking for Early Grade Reading” workshop and webinar.
In the day-long session, technical experts Joe DeStefano and Simon King of RTI presented country-specific examples, best practices, and lessons learned from standard setting and benchmarking exercises in more than ten countries.
The event was held in URC’s Bethesda headquarters, and was attended by more than 50 early grade reading specialists with more than 100 on-line registrants.
The REACH project, funded by USAID, is working to build the Global Reading Network, an international community of practice comprised of governments, practitioners, civil society organizations, teachers associations, academics, funders, UN agencies, and other stakeholders committed to improving reading outcomes for primary grade children across the globe.
