About "The Brain and Reading"

A look at The Nation’s Report Card reveals that there has been no improvement to the low reading rates of our students for the past 30 years, despite increases in special education, Title I, and school improvement grant dollars, technology, and the influx of countless intervention programs. This webinar will explore the underlying causes of literacy failure and how understanding the connections between the brain, reading, and the English language will help.

In this presentation, you will learn about:

The complexities of the English language
The brain and reading – understanding cognitive load and orthographic mapping
Willingham’s cognitive model and Stanislas Dehaene’s neuronal recycling hypothesis
Readable English, a solution to address the intrinsic problems of learning to read English
