Objective and Outcomes: *

This Science of Reading Short Course is comprised of five, self-paced online modules. Each module has clearly stated objectives, explicitly written background information, useful video demonstrations, numerous graphic illustrations, and a variety of downloadable resources and links. Based on adult learning theory, each module includes activities to reinforce concepts, intermittent feedback through the use of checks for understanding, and a final knowledge check to support mastery of concepts. The modules are based on more than forty years of research, including several foundational conceptual modules that explain how reading works. The following list includes the titles of each of the five modules covered in this course:
1. How Students Learn to Read: An Introduction to the Science of Reading
2. Structured Literacy
3. Word Recognition: An Encounter with Phonics
4. The Language Comprehension Domain
