Register for Five-Part Webinar Series

In this webinar series, we’ll deconstruct an important model in the science of reading—Scarborough’s Reading Rope—to explore how to effectively and joyfully teach the “big five” components of reading.

Walk away with

  • practical tips for translating the science of reading research
    into K–2 classroom practice.
  • a deeper understanding of effective instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
  • teaching techniques for each component of reading.
