What is THE SCIENCE OF TEACHING READING?

Haskins Literacy Initiative promotes the science of teaching reading by:

• Translating the latest findings from Haskins Laboratories—and other   reading researchers—into professional development and classroom   practices to help teachers instruct reading more effectively.

• Creating and delivering a sustainable model by continually   monitoring, analyzing, and refining the content and conduct of   professional development and embedded coaching, and by   extensively training on-site Teacher Specialists to continue   mentoring teachers.

• Continuing to design and conduct research to improve teacher    knowledge and student achievement in reading.

• Using student data to drive and differentiate instruction with an eye    to improving the efficacy of student assessment tools.

• Creating “method-proof” teachers who can weigh the merits of the   latest reading research, programs, and materials.

• Tailoring professional development to meet the needs of individual    schools, teachers, and students, and advising about key materials    needed to supplement existing school curricula.

• Providing a realistic roadmap to higher student achievement through    scope-and-sequences with clear curricular goals that guide    seamless delivery of reading instruction across grade levels.
