In this 90-minute webinar, Doug Lemov will share the research of cognitive scientists who study the science of reading and learning. Areas of research covered in this session include the critical role of background knowledge and fluency, building attention, creating strong communities of readers through shared reading, and the power of effective writing instruction in reading classes. For each of these areas of research, we will distill some principles for literacy instruction and provide examples of how the Reading Reconsidered Curriculum integrates these principles in lesson materials.
This Reading Reconsidered webinar is designed for leaders or teachers who are currently piloting the Reading Reconsidered Curriculum and would like to learn more about the science behind the design. This workshop is also open to teachers and leaders who are not using the curriculum but are interested in learning more about the Reading Reconsidered Curriculum and its research base.
Research will draw upon the works of:
- Daniel Willingham
- Christopher Such
- Maryanne Wolf
- Natalie Wexler
- Isabel Beck
- Tim Shanahan
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Please plan to be engaged as you will be asked to participate actively.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Those who are interested in or currently piloting the Reading Reconsidered curriculum and/or are keen to learn about its cognitive research and design principles.
