OUR GOAL

Empower Alaskan educators to connect understanding of reading science to classroom and leadership practices, resulting in increased reading proficiency for students.

What does “Science of Reading” mean in Alaska?

The Science of Reading is an ongoing field of study that examines the last fifty years of research to determine the most effective way to teach reading. A scientific approach to reading instruction includes explicit, systematic, instruction in phonological awareness (sounds), phonics, fluency (ability to read accurately and at an appropriate rate), vocabulary, and comprehension.

What can attendees expect?

 Our challenge is to ensure every child is proficient in reading with access to skilled educators implementing evidence-based practices. Alaska’s Science of Reading Symposium will explore the research, its implications, and the urgency of action for students across our great state.
