The Science of Reading

Unlock the Power of Literacy by Understanding the Science of Reading

Teaching reading without proper knowledge can have dire consequences on a student’s academic performance, considering that research has shown that only 35% of students are reading proficiently. Strobel Education can provide you with an understanding of the ‘Science of Reading’, which is a profound body of basic research with its roots in developmental psychology, educational psychology, cognitive science, and cognitive neuroscience, focusing on reading – one of the most complex human behaviors – and its biological bases such as neural and genetic factors.

Frequently Asked Questions

 The science of reading is an interdisciplinary body of research that explores how we learn to read, focusing on areas like phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. It brings together findings from cognitive science, educational psychology, and linguistics to provide a comprehensive view of effective reading instruction methods.

 Knowledge of the science of reading allows you to adopt teaching strategies that align with how the brain learns to read. These evidence-based strategies enable effective instruction in word recognition, orthographic mapping, phonics decoding, and language comprehension, ultimately leading to improved reading outcomes and overall student success.

While spoken language is a natural process, reading is not. Reading needs to be taught and learned. By understanding the science of reading, educators can better guide students in acquiring this essential skill.

 While the specific strategies may vary depending on the student’s grade level and reading proficiency, the fundamental principles that underpin the science of reading apply to all grades. It’s all about applying the principles in a developmentally appropriate manner.

 By understanding the science of reading, you will be equipped to integrate these principles into your existing literacy instruction. This doesn’t mean adding more to your plate but rather modifying how you teach certain elements of reading to align with evidence-based practices.
