This edWebinar discusses merging the Science of Reading with the Science of Learning in order to marry the research with practical implications for teaching. The Science of Reading tells us what the research says are the critical components of learning to read while the Science of Learning, grounded in cognitive science, tells us how we learn. By joining these two sciences, we can more readily understand how to teach so the vast majority of children become proficient readers.
This recorded edWebinar is of interest to teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders of the kindergarten through elementary grades.

Linda is the author of three widely used professional books for educators, Teaching Reading Sourcebook; Assessing Reading: Multiple Measures; and Vocabulary Handbook.

About the Moderator
Listen. Learn. Teach. It’s that simple. Terrie Noland uses this philosophy as an innovator and a motivator, and it’s evident as she leads, coaches and mentors thousands of K-12 educators about the science of reading each year. She has a unique perspective on the need to unify all stakeholders around a vision for education to smash the reading divide for the millions of struggling readers. Her daily mission is to add value to educators to help influence transformational changes in school districts across the country by addressing the needs of marginalized students. Terrie seeks to share her expertise and passion to encourage and to illuminate a path towards success and measurable outcomes.
If you looked at Terrie’s resume, you would be confused. Her undergraduate and graduate degree work placed her in the field of criminal justice. However, it was through continuous listening and learning that led her on a journey in education starting out in preschool teaching and administration, then becoming a Certified Academic Language Practitioner (CALP) and earning a Ph.D. in literacy and educational leadership from St. John’s University. Terrie is also a John Maxwell certified speaker and coach.
As Vice President of Educator Initiatives at Learning Ally, Terrie works to ignite enthusiasm and excitement by building champion educators and administrators on creating cultures of literacy and learning.
