The Science of Reading Series
apply CURRENT READING RESEARCH IN YOUR CLASSROOM
Our virtual Introductory Science of Reading Professional Learning Series teaches critical components of literacy instruction for Grades K-2, 3-5, or Administrators*, integrating current research into each module and translating it into classroom application.
The series consists of ten 2.5-hour facilitated, synchronous modules held via Zoom and continued learning through asynchronous materials and follow up activities via Google Classroom. These modules address questions such as:
- What happens in the brain when we read? How can this understanding inform our instruction?
- How is reading related to oral language?
- What are high-leverage instructional routines that support reading acquisition?
- What role does automaticity play in becoming a proficient reader?
- What cognitive processes are involved in deeply understanding text?
- How do we know we are using the right assessments to determine student need?
- . . . and much more!
*Adolescent Series and Digging Deeper into Science of Reading coming in SY21-22.

It can be challenging to know where to start and what to do with my readers who are below grade level. This course has given me new, research-based strategies to help me better my instruction, especially for my struggling readers.

The approach to reading instruction as something that can be attacked on a scientific level has made something that felt very abstract feel and become more manageable.
