The Science of Reading in Action

Marleigh Gilyard Mar 8, 2024 9:42:48 AM

EdWeek recently released an article focused on teacher time on foundational reading skills, and while "there is no magic number... it often falls to teachers to make decisions about how much instructional time to devote to the many interrelated components of reading". Large reading blocks can create a challenge for keeping students engaged and focused. With a reading block of up to 120 minutes, it's essential for educators to implement innovative strategies that not only capture students' attention but align with the Science of Reading.
