Course DescriptionThis course draws on cutting-edge research in machine learning, linguistics, and early childhood development drawing from the books "Language at the Speed of Sight" and "Brain Words: How the Science of Reading Informs Teaching." In this course, you will learn how children’s brains develop as they become readers and discover ways you can take concrete steps to promote this critical developmental passage. Using a research-based framework of “brain words”—dictionaries in the brain where students store and automatically access sounds, spellings, and meanings—the course offers a wealth of information that will transform thinking and practice.
