Boston – June 3, 2020 – Whether teachers return to a physical or remote classroom next school year, they are going to see larger and more diverse gaps in student learning compared to previous years.

On June 11 at 3:00 p.m. ET, Dr. Liz Brooke, Chief Learning Officer for Lexia Learning, a Rosetta Stone company (NYSE: RST), will present a free informative webinar on “Accelerating Student Learning to Close the Gaps: Strategies to Mitigate the Impacts of COVID Slide and Summer Learning Loss.” The webinar — hosted by and sponsored by Lexia Learning — will offer actionable strategies for accelerating skill development to help all students — not just those at-risk — make the critical gains they need to combat the effects of the school shutdowns during COVID-19 and “summer slide” — and close those gaps.

In her role as Chief Learning Officer, Dr. Brooke guides the pedagogical approach and research strategy for Lexia’s personalized literacy programs. Dr. Brooke joined Lexia from the Florida Center for Reading Research in 2010, where she served as the Director of Interventions. Prior to FCRR, she worked as a Speech and Language pathologist evaluating students with learning disabilities, a Title I reading instructor, and a first-grade classroom teacher. Dr. Brooke’s steadfast determination to ensure all children become successful readers and confident learners continues to be the driving force behind all of her work.

There is no cost to join the webinar, but registration is required. For more information, please go to
