While the Science of Reading tells us what is essential for building a reader, the Science of Learning tells us the conditions that are necessary for learning to thrive and last. During this edWebinar, Dr. Marisa Ramirez Stukey and Dr. Lenora Forsythe explore the elements of the Science of Learning and connect the Science of Learning to the Science of Reading.

Viewers engage in learning about the evidence base for the Science of Learning and connect those principles to the components of the Reading Rope. Professional readings and discussions ground the session as well as lesson and video analysis to connect the research to practice. Watch this session to consider the implications for your own practice and to learn more about how combining the Science of Learning with the Science of Reading has the potential to meet the needs of the whole child and support the development of independent learners. By the end of this edWebinar, viewers are able to:

  • Define the key components of the Science of Learning and the skills/sub-skills of the Science of Reading
  • Identify parallels between the Science of Reading and the Science of Learning
  • Refine instructional priorities grounded in the Science of Reading and the Science of Learning

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers, reading coaches, curriculum directors, and school and district leaders.
