For decades, CORE has advocated the use of instructional practices based on the science of reading, and for the importance of educators to learn the science of reading in order to help all children become strong readers. But what is the science of reading? A team of stakeholders, including CORE’s Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Dale Webster, has been working to develop a shared definition of the science of reading. On Wednesday, February 3, 2021, during The Reading League’s annual Winter Symposium, the team will release the newly created definition, its rationale, and provide calls to action for all stakeholders.
The virtual event will mark the beginning of The Reading League’s “Science of Reading: A Defining Moment” initiative. Throughout the day on February 3, speakers will discuss various aspects of the science of reading including equitable access to reading instruction, aligning practice to the science of reading, and how to move beyond the reading wars. Dr. Webster will be a panelist during the first session of the Symposium, The Science of Reading, a Defining Moment.
We hope you’ll join us at this historic event!
