Reading instruction has been the subject of much debate. Yet, five decades of research show how to effectively assess and teach reading. As educators take action to align instruction with scientific research, many have questions about what’s needed for system-wide change to take root.

Join three leading voices in the Science of Reading movement—Emily Hanford, Kareem Weaver, and Dr. Michelle Hosp—for a discussion of the critical elements required to transform how reading is taught. They’ll explore:

  • The consequences for students when instruction doesn’t align with the science
  • The importance of a comprehensive assessment system in providing equitable reading instruction
  • How evidence-based instructional materials and a strong core curriculum can empower educators and improve literacy outcomes for all students
  • The need to continue to advocate for the Science of Reading in the face of opposition and a system that is slow to change
