The “science of reading” includes far more than phonics—its end goal is student comprehension of increasingly complex text. To be successful, schools must introduce students to extensive content, provide the background knowledge and vocabulary needed to understand new books, all while building their stamina to persist through harder and longer text.

Join us to dive deep into reading comprehension, see exclusive new data on what educators see as the top challenges, and get ideas to improve student outcomes. Attendees will come away with knowledge of the components of reading comprehension, a sense of the core obstacles, and insights into promising new curricular developments.
