Evidence-based reading instruction.
What are evidence-based practices? What kinds of evidence exist for the multitude of topics related to reading instruction and assessment?
Where can the evidence regarding reading instruction and reading assessment be found?
How can the various kinds of evidence be accessed, understood, and put into practice?
To paraphrase a well known children's book,
Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who,
"We are here! We are here! We are here!"
Similar to the Whos joining their voices together to make their critically important message heard, advocates of evidence-based reading practices are voicing an equally important message:
"There is a lot that can be done to help each child and adult in need of learning how to read. There is a lot that can be done to help each educator learn what evidence we have for various skills and strategies. We can help."
