Reading is a complex process, but it can be explained through a simple equation built around five foundations of reading. It’s critical that educators 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. At CORE, we care deeply about kids and how they learn to read. We also care deeply about teachers and how they learn to teach reading. That is why so many of our workshops, mentoring and coaching centers around the science of reading.
To help educators better understand the science of reading and instructional practices based on it, we’ve created a Science of Reading Resource Library. This online library includes webinars featuring literacy experts like Dr. David Kilpatrick, Dr. Michelle Hosp, and Kareem Weaver. You’ll also find other videos, links to articles, an infographic, and much more to support your and your team’s learning about the science of reading. READ MORE
