The Science of Reading
The Reading League’s mission is to demystify the science of reading so that more educators become aware of it, understand it, and use it to cultivate strong readers. We advance our mission by collaborating with schools to plan and enact long-term professional development initiatives, publishing a peer-reviewed practitioner journal, and holding an Annual Conference. The Reading League works to translate key findings from the science of reading into useful knowledge and skills that educators can apply in their classrooms.
