Put Reading First is a summary of the findings from the Report of the National Reading Panel, summarized in a brief, easy-to-read comprehensive guide to evidence-based reading instruction. Intended for educators and administrators, this guide aims to improve reading outcomes for children in the early grades, summarizing key research findings on phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.

  1. As I come back to this resource to dive into text comprehension, I am thinking about how great this information is- but the challenges of teaching this well. The science of teaching and learning. This is where SRSD can play an evidence- based role in supporting reading comprehension.

  2. Thank you Una!
    I personally would also appreciate to see a newCanadian Reading Panel put together, and have also it address the orthographic system in detail.
    Much appreciated!
