With increased requirements for schools and districts to select evidence-based instructional programs, a great deal of focus has been placed on Structured Literacy and the Science of Reading. However, there is considerable confusion regarding the definitions of these terms and how this impacts the application of effective reading instruction strategies. In this edWebinar, Lexia’s Dr. Suzanne Carreker, CALT-QI, and Julie Bertram discuss why educators should trust the Science of Reading to inform reading instruction and how this gold-standard evidence is applied in the classroom through Structured Literacy.
This recorded edWebinar will be of value to preK through high school teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, reading specialists, and special education teachers.
