Grades K–2: Understanding How Students Learn to Read

Professional Learning Workshop

Support students’ reading success by using methods that align with how the brain acquires, processes, and retains language, letters, and sounds.

Reinforce novel connections

Our brains are wired to learn spoken language, but students begin to form novel connections between speech and print as they learn to read. Gain insight into how students learn to read in English, the elements of print reading, and how to implement instructional practices supported by research on the science of reading.
