The Science of Reading

What is the Science of Reading and what's in it for me and my students?

Recently there has been lots of talk about following the science of reading but what exactly is it and how does it impact my classroom or intervention room? In this presentation we will explore the science of reading. We will talk about what it is and is not and how, we as school-based teams, can apply this information to our most challenging students. Through case studies, participants will learn about this information and how it can be applied. This series of four two-hour trainings will cover the following topics:

  • An Introduction to the Science of Reading
  • Phonological Processing: What is it? Why is it important and how do I teach it?

  • Reading Comprehension: Putting it all together
