The Reading League

The science of reading marketplace is difficult to navigate and digest. It is often full of misinformation that makes educators, educational leaders, and decision-makers vulnerable to implementing practices that are somehow labeled as “science of reading,” yet they are not aligned with the scientific evidence base. The Reading League Compass provides reliable and understandable guidance for a variety of targeted stakeholders: Educators and Specialists, English Learners / Emergent Bilinguals, Educator Preparation Programs, Administrators, and Policymakers and State Education Agencies.
