Our Principles


Science of Literacy

The essentials of literacy instruction.

Literacy is the foundation of learning across all disciplines. For several years, the Science of Reading has been dominating the national conversation about literacy, with phonics at its center.

As research and knowledge continue to evolve, it’s time to expand our definition of what science-based reading instruction entails. Let’s start thinking in terms of the Science of Literacy—a phrase that encompasses the Science of Reading, the Science of Writing, and Knowledge Building more broadly. Because together, these bodies of research unlock the wide array of interrelated skills needed to build strong readers, writers, and thinkers. And the more you write, the better you read, the more you understand. Together, we can apply the Science of Literacy to help students explore their curiosities, develop their interests, and share them with the world.

Learning from the Experts

We’re honored to partner with renowned experts and researchers—including McGraw Hill curriculum authors Dr. Jan Hasbrouck, Dr. Douglas Fisher, and Dr. Timothy Shanahan—to explore and apply the Science of Literacy.

In this video, hear from Dr. Hasbrouck about how she cuts through the noise when it comes to competing guidance on the Science of Reading.

Featuring: Dr. Douglas Fisher and Dr. Tanya S. Wright

Writing is an essential part of literacy instruction, and it also plays a significant role in learning across content areas. In this session, our panelists discuss writing in content-area instruction and beyond, including how writing can help build knowledge, how it supports vocabulary development, and how you can foster a classroom conducive to writing success.

Featuring: Dr. Amanda Goodwin

The Science of Reading is an ever-evolving body of research, and its findings go beyond the importance of foundational skills. In this session, our experts offer an expanded understanding of the Science of Reading and touch upon elements less prevalent in discourse today. They discuss research and strategies around topics like digital literacies, differences among learners, and the role of curricula.

Importance of Knowledge Building in Literacy

Featuring: Dr. Doug Fisher

Discover the important role that building knowledge plays in how students learn to read. Author and researcher Dr. Douglas Fisher shares valuable insights about how to build conceptual knowledge to support reading comprehension, how to make knowledge “stick” with learners, and the power of using text sets to build knowledge.
