High quality reading At The Practice Hub, we bring a systems approach to improving early reading instruction to all children.
Nearly two-thirds of students in America read at less than proficient levels. In high-needs schools this percent often balloons to three-fourths or more. The solution is not any one thing. Rather, addressing the reading instruction system involves improving multiple inputs to result in high-quality instruction that yields improved reading outcomes.
Decades of dissonance within education has resulted in scattershot and failed approaches to reading improvement. At The Practice Hub, while we are adherents to reading research, we also know it's not sufficient. Schools must have a system for improvement. At the Practice Hub, we help school implement an effective system to improve reading instruction.
The road to improved reading instruction begins with the answers to several questions.
1. Is there a strong motivation to improve?
2. Are you ready to adopt new thinking about successful reading instruction?
3. Are you ready to confront the "known unknowns" of reading instruction?
3. Are you ready to explore the "unknown unknows" required for successful change?
At The Practice Hub, we use implementation science methods to benchmark the reading instruction system within a school. We train teachers in combining the science of reading with the art of teaching. Beyond knowledge, we help teachers become increasingly skilled at delivering high-quality literacy activities. We provide diagnostic assessment tools that inform teachers on what students need to learn to become better readers. And we work to help each school build a sustainable literacy instruction system based on continual improvement.
