The Alaska Science of Reading Symposium is a three-day educational conference focusing on implementing change that effectively connects reading science with classroom and leadership practices to increase reading proficiency for students. 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 (the ability to read accurately and at an appropriate rate), vocabulary, and comprehension.
