“The science of reading” is a phrase that is used frequently. However, what it means is sometimes unclear. In this webinar we will review a small but important set of findings, instructional practices, and guiding principles that have been established across the past four decades of reading research. Information will be provided in a way that allows educators to understand what the science of reading tells us about how children learn to read, what forms of reading instruction and strategies are most effective, and what the evidence tells us about reading difficulties.
Explore the research that explains the science of reading, what happens in the brain as a child learns to read, and the solutions that can help striving readers accelerate and achieve.
