Adapting Classroom Practices to Reflect Recent Reading Research

: :

Paul Black, M.Ed, Ed.S., NCSP, a school psychologist and literacy consultant, joins Laura Axtell, M.Ed., to close season 6 of Podclassed with a discussion about recent reading research. The discussion covers the difference between evidence-based and research-based reading programs, phonemic awareness and sound-letter correspondence, and the impact of teacher training in the science of reading. By incorporating the most up-to-date research in the classroom, teachers can help to prevent the social-emotional challenges that are often faced by students when reading problems aren't properly addressed.
