Concern with the science of reading is spreading in the popular press, in research journals, and on a Facebook forum that numbers 50,000 participants. The focus in the vast majority of popular press articles and on Facebook is phonics. However, the science of reading deals with much more than phonics. The National Council for Teacher Quality noted that Teaching Reading in the 21st Century was an exemplary text consistent with the science of reading and containing the essential elements of effective reading instruction. Join us in a webinar where we will discuss what the science of reading reveals about effective instruction on word recognition, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and motivation and offer suggestions on how to use our textbook in your reading methods courses.
