The Science of Reading

The Reading League’s mission is to advance the awareness, understanding, and use of evidence-aligned reading instruction. 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.
