Find the Zone - Join us for Our High Tea Series 6/17

You are invited to join Patti Pace, SBISD’s Associate Superintendent for Teaching and Learning, in a conversation with Dr. Pearson in the third event of our High Tea Series.

Dr. Pearson, an expert on early literacy, is the former dean of the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley and a faculty member in the programs in Language and Literacy and Human Development. His research focuses on reading instruction and assessment.

He is the recipient of many awards, including the 1989 Oscar Causey Award (NRC) for contributions to reading research, the 1990 William S. Gray Citation of Merit (IRA) for contributions to reading research and practice, the 2005 Albert J. Harris Award (IRA) for the year's best reading disability publication, and the 2003Alan Purves Award (NCTE) for a publication impacting practice.

In 2006 the University of Minnesota honored him with the Alumni Outstanding Achievement Award, and in 2010 AERA presented him Distinguished Contributions to Research in Education Award. In 2012, the Literacy Research Association established the P. David Pearson Scholarly Influence Award to be given annually to honor research that exerts a long-term influence on literacy practices and/or policies.
