Reading is not hard-wired in the human brain, yet with recent advances in neuroscience, we understand, better than ever, the science of how humans learn to read. When educators understand this science, they can become more effective reading teachers.

In addition, participants will leave with a collection of effective strategies for teaching phonics, "sight" words, vocabulary, and comprehension.
