Science of Reading Workshop

Bridging the Gap Between the Science of Reading and Classroom Practices

“Forget who to blame for the current Reading Wars and stagnant reading scores, this session is chock full of solutions that are practical, affordable, and doable the next day you enter your classroom.” Richard Gentry


In this session we rethink how we teach literacy through the lens of the current cognitive science and neuroscience in the Science of Reading. We will focus on changes needed in classroom practices and how to integrate word study for teaching all the essential elements for reading comprehension and text composing:


Content includes the following:

  • Phonological Awareness
  • Spelling
  • Phonics
  • Morphology & Vocabulary
  • Handwriting

See how each of these integrated components impacts automatic word reading, reading comprehension and text composing.
