The Science of Reading: Advancing, Protecting and Supporting the Body of Work and its Many Authors
Language changes by use. Pronunciations and spellings change over time, root words slip their moorings and float downstream, phrases morph into expressions quite different from their first meaning. Something as well-used as the phrase ‘the science of reading’ risks change through use, and even misuse. Let’s take some time together to make sure that this helpful way of talking about sharing best practice preserves its original and most truthful definition. By looking, phrase by phrase, at a definition of the science of reading, spoken by Louisa Moats’ in an interview with Collaborative Classroom, we can deepen our understanding of all of its implications and raise our effectiveness as communicators of its key concepts.
