Cortex in the Classroom

Advancing the Science of Reading in the Early Years

EXPERT: Dr. Carolyn Strom

What do findings from cognitive neuroscience mean for early reading instruction? How does what we know about how the brain develops apply to how we teach our beginning readers? Most importantly, what are the concrete implications for classroom practice? These questions will be at the heart of this session, which will focus on the science behind early reading and spelling development – and how to apply findings to classrooms.
