The importance of the teacher’s role is emphasized throughout this course, using seven pillars of effective reading instruction: Teacher Knowledge; Classroom Assessment; Evidence-Based Teaching Strategies; Response to Intervention (or Multi-Tiered Systems of Support); Motivation and Engagement; and Technology and New Literacies; Family and Community Connections. Filled with recommendations made by the Institute of Education Sciences’ What Works Clearinghouse and links to IRIS Center instructional modules (in Revel), this course provides the research-based tools and knowledge needed to plan and deliver up-to-date, effective reading instruction in today’s classrooms.
