More than half of states are mandating a radical shift in reading instruction—requiring teachers to adopt a “science of reading” approach to early literacy.
Studies have shown that explicit, systematic instruction in phonics, along with other foundations like a sustained approach to building students’ vocabulary and content knowledge, is the most effective way to teach children how to read words.
Learn from science of reading experts and gain critical insights into:
- The key components of the “science of reading” approach to reading instruction
- How to apply this approach in classrooms
- What schools and teachers need to do to make the shift to this way of teaching
