The Science of Reading: What EdLeaders Need to Know
Cory Armes, in the Science of Learning Blog, stated, "The term “science of reading” refers to the research that reading experts, especially cognitive scientists, have conducted on how we learn to read. This body of knowledge, over twenty years in the making, has helped debunk older methods of reading instruction that were based on tradition and observation, not evidence."
