The Science of Reading

Learning to read proficiently is critical to a student’s entire education and predictive of future education, health and employment outcomes. The 5 specific reading sub-skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension should be taught explicitly and systematically so all children become capable readers. At Our Lady of the Way, we use an evidence based approach and explicit teaching to meet the needs of our students.
