The Science of Reading
Eighty-five percent of the K-12 curriculum is presented through reading. In other words: A child who can’t read well won’t do well in the classroom. Given that only 35% of fourth- and eighth-graders are reading proficiently, this is an urgent situation—and it’s one we can fix using science.
The body of research that is the science of reading (SoR) informs an explicit, systematic, cumulative, diagnostic, and responsive approach to teaching literacy. Educators with SoR training know how to meet each child where they are, guiding them to be proficient readers while creating equity in the classroom. Join Lexia Chief Learning Officer Dr. Liz Brooke as she unpacks the science that will help us close the gaps in education together.
