The Science of Reading: Understanding Foundational Skills and What to Expect in Classroom Instruction.

Join Us to Examine the “Why,” “What,” and “How” of the Science of Reading


There is no greater mission for educators than ensuring all students are successful, joyful readers. In recent months and years, the science of reading is finally getting the attention it deserves. Schools across the U.S. are having serious conversations about how to align early reading instruction to the large body of evidence about reading—the most studied aspect of human learning.
