Reading Meetings with Mark and Molly

Reading Meetings with Mark and Molly

By Molly Farry-Thorn
Reading researcher and author Dr. Mark Seidenberg is joined by Dr. Molly Farry-Thorn and a variety of guests to discuss how to bridge the gaps between researchers and educators—with each meeting focusing on a specific topic. These meetings provide an opportunity for a deeper dive into topics that are complicated and require nuance. Another goal is to model how people who disagree about important issues can communicate and learn from each other.
