Reading may be a complex process, but it can be explained through a simple equation built around five foundations of reading. Educators must understand the science behind how students learn to read and what skills they need to succeed in order to teach students to be skilled readers.
Watch as Linda Diamond, CORE President and literacy expert, explains the foundational principles of the science of reading and the critical role they play in planning reading instruction and interventions.
CORE’s Online Elementary Reading Academy teaches the essential components of reading instruction based on the science of reading. In seven facilitated, asynchronous modules, the course covers foundational skills, instructional best practices and explicit models for teaching reading. These evidence-based practices can be used to support reading instruction in the classroom or remotely.
