The Science of Reading Short Course is an accessible, self-paced course based on more than forty years of research related to neuroscience, reading processes, reading instruction, and implementation science. The course consists of six modules book-ended by an introduction and wrap-up. Each module also has a knowledge check. The course is designed to take between 10-15 hours and to serve as an ongoing resource for participants. It offers an efficient and practical introduction to the science of reading for a variety of educators – teachers, instructional coaches, school and district leaders, pre-service candidates, and pre-service faculty, whose training may not have adequately prepared them for evidence-based instruction in reading. Based on adult learning theory, each module has clearly stated objectives, explicitly written background information, useful video demonstrations, numerous graphic illustrations, interactive activities to apply and reinforce concepts, and a final knowledge check to support mastery. The course has robust downloadable resources and links to opportunities to go deeper in specific areas for those interested in extending their learning. The original Science of Reading Short Course was collaboratively created through a partnership of five educational organizations across the country to train Teach For America corps members during the first summer of the pandemic. Original partners included Barksdale Reading Institute, Hill Learning Center, The Reading League, Right to Read Project, and The Reading Teacher's Top Ten Tools. As an outgrowth of this work, Hill Learning Center spearheaded an effort to refine the content into a relevant and engaging course for all teachers of reading. The current course is the second version, which has been developed by the following Authors and Advisors: Beth Battle Anderson, Hill Learning Center, Author Kelly Butler, Barksdale Reading Institute, Advisor Dr. Deb Glaser, Developer, The Reading Teacher’s Top Ten Tools, Advisor Margaret Goldberg, The Right to Read Project, Advisor Sharon Hopper, Hill Learning Center, Author Marion McBride, Barksdale Reading Institute, Author Dr. Barbara Randall, Hill Learning Center, Author Laura Stewart, 95 Percent Group, Advisor Read More
