When educators follow the Science of Reading—the research on how students learn to read and how to teach reading skills most effectively—all children can successfully learn to read. This makes the Science of Reading a powerful lever for equity. Implementing the Science of Reading within a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) framework ensures that all students receive explicit and systematic literacy instruction and that students at risk of reading difficulties receive timely, evidence-based intervention to support their growth.
During this edWebinar, Dr. Kim Gibbons provides guidance for implementing the Science of Reading within an MTSS framework to remove barriers to reading success. In this session, viewers explore:
- The critical elements of MTSS that must be in place to ensure all students have the skills, knowledge, and opportunities to become strong readers
- The characteristics of effective literacy assessments for universal screening and progress monitoring
- What’s missing in many popular literacy assessments
- The use of systematic and explicit instructional strategies to drive improved literacy outcomes for all learners
This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-12 teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, and school counselors and psychologists.
