An hour with Levar Burton talking about literacy. Hell, yes. Let me be honest: I haven’t watched this yet. BUT it is now at the top of my To Watch list and I was too excited to keep it to myself. Here’s a peek at the talk description:
A Gift of Literacy: A Conversation with LeVar Burton: 25 million children in the U.S. can’t read proficiently. Reading, access to books, and supporting resources are a critical part of any child’s education. With a shared passion and commitment to finding solutions to the nation’s literacy crisis, LeVar Burton and Reading Is Fundamental’s Alicia Levi share insights and perspectives how digital resources can open up a child’s world and provide the foundation that they need to become literate, compassionate and critical-thinking global citizens.
