Seeing the Elephant: Understanding Evidence for Literacy

Region 1 Logo

From legislation to curricular materials, the science of reading continues to spark conversation about effective, equitable literacy instruction. This webinar examines considerations necessary for productive discussion of the science of reading. Region 1 Comprehensive Center presenters will discuss evidence for literacy, including the science of teaching, implementation science, and methodology considerations. By differentiating between evidence, research, and claims about research, participants will learn productive ways to analyze and discuss evidence as one piece of a puzzle in decision making. The webinar will conclude with a demonstration of a tool to use ESSA Non-Regulatory Guidance with the framework to inform decisions based on context.
