Everyone seems to be talking about the science of reading, and with good reason. The shift towards the science of reading has uncovered major gaps in some of the most widely used programs and methods of instruction. It’s shaken up the foundation of how many of us were trained to teach.
The good news is the science of reading is not a trend, a fad, or one side of a reading war. It’s a body of research that includes instructional methods that actually work to improve student outcomes and prevent future reading difficulties.
In this webinar, we will:
Walk through everything you need to know about the science of reading
Explore essential elements and strategies you can put into practice
Delve into how to help students develop strong foundational reading skills and comprehension
So, do you want to know what all the buzz is about? Join Deedee Wills, a trained expert in the science of reading, for this free webinar designed to take you from theory to practice.
