Pioneer Valley Books Professional Learning Webinar Series: Unpacking Reading Science to Inform a Different Path to Literacy
The “Science of Reading” (SoR) movement that began in 2018 has gained momentum and has had an outsized influence on state reading policy and classroom practice. However, the SoR movement presents two negative impacts on long-term literacy education—a commitment to the “Simple View” of Reading (SVR) and mandates for phonics-first instruction for all beginning readers. In this webinar, Paul Thomas, Ed.D. (Professor of Education, Furman University, and author of How to End the Reading War and Serve the Literacy Needs of All Students), places the SoR movement within the context of the robust but complex current state of reading science. Come join us on Thursday, October 20, 2022, at 4 p.m. as we explore what’s next in literacy education.
