Researchers in medicine and education have been studying how the brain acquires the ability to read since the 1800s. During those decades, many theories were developed. Recently, technology that allows noninvasive tracking of neurological processes has dramatically changed our thinking about how we learn to read and what are the most effective ways to provide instruction and intervention. We now understand that approximately 95% of students can be taught to read, especially if we start the process early. We know that the most effective instruction is provided by teachers who are both well- informed and well-supported. The newest research supports using “structured literacy”, systematic and explicit instruction that involves multi-modality and active engagement from students. This session reviews the current research from medicine, psychology, and education. The implications for how to use this newest, research-based science to design and provide the most effective instruction for all students will be discussed.
1. Know about the current research on learning to read.
2. Understand why we can now conclude that approximately 95% of students can be taught to read, write, and spell successfully.
3. Learn the definition of “structured literacy” and its essential components: Comprehensive, systematic, explicit, and intensive instruction that provides multi-modal engagement for students that is informed by data.
4. Learn ways to effectively implement “structured literacy” in real-world classrooms for all students.
