This summer, New Haven Reads is hosting an online lecture series called “Language and Learning.” This lecture series is free and open to the public, with the goal of enriching our collective understanding of critical and intersectional issues in education and literacy.

These lectures range in topics from reading instruction for diverse learners, to the role of identity and culture in education, to the importance of libraries and public spaces to education and literacy.

The next three lectures are listed below. You can learn more and register by clicking the links. All events are 45 minutes long. After you register, you will receive a Zoom link to access the lecture.
