“The Science of Reading:  Comprehensive Literacy Instruction for ALL Students”

 Students in K-12 classrooms must read throughout the day for a variety of purposes. How has the science of reading informed what this instruction should look like and include? This session will define and describe methods of instruction for each component of comprehensive literacy instruction.
