Alaska EdVenture Podcast Episode 16: Reading Success: Walk to Read for Student Literacy | May 2024

In this episode, Superintendent Dr. Meinert is joined by Jessica Weber, Midnight Sun Elementary teacher, and Nicole Krenzke, Ticasuk Brown Elementary teacher, to delve into the implementation of Walk to Read in our schools.

They explore how Walk to Read utilizes Mclass test scores and classroom data to group students according to their reading abilities and requirements. By providing teachers with the necessary time for reading interventions, Walk to Read aims to bridge the reading gap early on, setting students up for success in their academic journeys. The discussion also touches on the Alaska Reads Act, which focuses on Kindergarten through third grade, with the ultimate goal of ensuring students are on grade level by the conclusion of third grade.
