I read a report on Science of Reading in the New York Times dated 16.4.2023.
In the entire report there was no definition of the ‘Science of Reading.’
Why do we keep reinventing the wheel and come up with so-called discoveries which do not improve the level of reading?
Here are some extracts from the article in the New York Times and my comments.
New York Times:
The movement, under the banner of “the science of reading,” is targeting the education establishment: school districts, literacy gurus, publishers and colleges of education, which critics say have failed to embrace the cognitive science of how children learn to read.
