With the science of reading, you can—

Level the playing field.

For many teachers, though, the science of reading feels overwhelming because it’s so… different. As you teach, it’s hard to know for sure if you’re getting it “right.”

You shouldn’t have to figure it out on your own. When you join the Science of Reading Collective, you won’t have to.
