NEW! Unpacking the Science of Reading

Unpacking-the-Science-of-Reading-Collection-icon

Evidence-based literacy instruction is critical to student success, but without a sound understanding of the science behind the science of reading (SOR), successful implementation of a program rooted in research can be difficult.

This ILA Resource Collection is geared toward classroom teachers, reading specialists, literacy coaches, principals, and other school-based educators seeking a deeper understanding of the science in the science of reading and how it informs practice. Easy-to-understand readings are paired with curated video clips and discussion prompts to enhance professional learning that’s self-directed or in a group setting.

In short, the collection is for anyone trying to design, adopt, or embrace an SOR curriculum.

Literacy and Social-Emotional Learning

Literacy and Social Emotional Learning

Embedding social-emotional learning (SEL) in literacy instruction has the power to create inclusive classroom spaces that center students, amplify their voices, and unpack and heal potential trauma.

In this ILA Resource Collection, we examine connections between reading, writing, and developing social-emotional skills, as well as how SEL-integrated literacy instruction leads to stronger school communities and increased academic success.

Addressing the Impact of COVID-19 in the Literacy Classroom

Addressing-the-Impact-of-COVID-icon

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic had many in education wondering how long it would be before we could return to normal. But as we began to navigate the new “normal,” what we learned is that the only way to move forward is to evolve.

This ILA Resource Collection considers the needs of today’s students, teachers, and other school-based professionals—and what culturally responsive and trauma-informed practices should be carried forth to ensure that literacy instruction not only bridges lingering learning gaps and mitigates residual effects of lost instructional time but also reimagines more equitable possibilities for students impacted by the pandemic.

In short, practices that ensure better outcomes for all.

The resources provide practical, evidence-based strategies to help educators tailor their instruction to meet the needs of all their readers and, in the process, they challenge the notion of what it means to be a reader who struggles.

Instructional Strategies for Today's Writers

Instructional-Strategies-for-Today's-Writers-Collection-icon

How do you support foundational writing skills while also fostering an environment where writing is seen as a process, as a way to promote critical thinking, and as an art as much as a skill?

These ILA Resource Collections tackle that question while focusing on age-appropriate topics ranging from emergent writing to amplifying voices, think-alouds to the revision process, and teacher feedback to real-world writing experiences. You’ll gain a blueprint for establishing a classroom that grows writers toward independent thought and creativity—and encourages them to write, to think, and to critically view the future.
