Join Noah Text founder Sarah K. Blodgett and co-director of Rhode Island Tutorial & Educational Services Lisa Bigney for an informative online workshop about Noah Text®. Grounded in the science of reading, Noah Text® is a specialized scaffolded text that shows readers the structure of words—bolstering their reading skill—while providing them independence and enjoyment in wide reading.
