Exploring Common Misconceptions about the Science of Reading

On-Demand Webinar

Science of Reading Webinar Series, Part 2

In the second installment of our Science of Reading webinar series, we unpack four common misconceptions associated with the Science of Reading:

  • “The Science of Reading is limited to the acquisition of foundational skills, specifically, phonics.” 

  • “The only type of instruction aligned with the Science of Reading is direct instruction.”

  • “All high-frequency words must be taught with a phoneme-grapheme mapping technique.”

  • “Students should exclusively read highly-controlled, decodable texts.”

In this webinar, you'll get clarity about what the body of research says, learn about the theoretical models often referenced, and hear explicit examples that connect research to classroom instruction.
