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
As the number of English learners attending public schools continues to increase, educators from the central office to the general education classroom can benefit from understanding the best approaches for teaching literacy to this diverse population of students.

Word problems and real-life scenario tasks are increasingly being integrated into math instruction today and are even the center pieces of many math curricula. For these types of math tasks, students must create and use mathematical models to represent and solve the problem situations. However, problem-solving with math applications remains exceedingly challenging for students. READ MORE
CORE’s Director of Mathematics, Dean Ballard, was in Las Vegas Feb. 25 – 28 for this year’s NABE conference. If you missed his session or just missed getting the handouts, we’ve got them here for you!
Twenty Techniques to Increase Access to Solving Math Word Problems
Assessing Reading: Multiple Measures, Revised 2nd Edition provides a collection of tests for the comprehensive assessment of skills related to reading. These assessments can help identify why a student is having reading difficulty, determine what the next step in instruction should be to remediate that difficulty, and monitor progress throughout the course of instruction.
We have provided the assessments included Assessing Reading: Multiple Measures in convenient, interactive PDFs so that you can more easily use them with students and access the assessment results electronically. Download the zip file (44mb) to access the forms.
NOTE: Be sure to read the included Instructions file (“CORE_MM_Forms_Instructions.pdf”) before using the forms.
