Scientifically-Based Reading PD

If you are an educator new to learning about scientifically-based reading recognize you are not alone. This section helps contextualize issues surrounding common literacy practices. The current discussions surrounding literacy practices are not attacks on teachers, they are calling into question reading pedagogy that does not align with a substantial body of research about how a child's brain learns to read. Our common goal is that we want all students to be successful readers, but there are many misconceptions that must be corrected. This page contains webinars and podcasts to assist your learning journey and we encourage teachers to read the resources on our Scientifically-Based Reading Page to explore videos, articles, and research as they relate to the Simple View of Reading.
