In early literacy, there’s a new and welcome emphasis on applying the science of reading to teaching practices and curriculum content. In this episode of Literacy Talks, our trio of literacy experts explores the bigger picture, helping educators and administrators alike think about their literacy programs as a strategic mix of components. Phonics is at the core as the training wheels for building skills in comprehension, writing, and reading to learn. It’s an eye-opening discussion with context and perspectives that will help us understand the what, how, why, and when of reading science in the classroom.
