What does the Science of Reading look like in practice?

The Science of Reading is a vast body of research into how students learn to read and which evidence-based best practices promote students’ reading development. Understanding and integrating that research into daily reading instruction can help improve student outcomes.

Join award-winning researcher, professor, and author Dr. Sharon Vaughn for an edWebinar focused on practical, real-world strategies for incorporating the Science of Reading into today’s elementary classrooms. Viewers leave with:

  • A practical understanding of the Science of Reading
  • Specific strategies associated with improved outcomes for students
  • Helpful tips for aligning instruction with evidence-based best practices
  • Classroom-ready activities to strengthen foundational reading skills

Viewers receive free access to the Savvas Science of Reading Digital Bookshelf, which includes ready-to-use literacy activities for your classrooms (phonics, fluency, and more!), free eBooks featuring expert authors, and other essential resources.

All educators with an interest in elementary literacy—especially K-5 classroom teachers, reading coaches, literacy leaders, instructional leaders, special educators, and curriculum directors—are encouraged to view this edWebinar.
