  • WolfPACK Works is an initiative of Read to Achieve that will help K-2 teachers teach literacy skills to their students
  • The program, a partnership between NC State and the state Department of Public Instruction, is funded for one year and begins this school year
  • Literacy skills are particularly important in the early grades as reading is the foundation of student learning for K-12 education and beyond

In this episode of EdTalk, host Alex Granados talks with Paola Sztajn, associate dean for Research and Innovation at NC State University’s College of Education and co-principal investigator for Wolfpack WORKS.
