Evidence–Based Reading Instruction

What is evidence–based reading instruction (EBRI)?

EBRI is an approach to teaching reading and provides teachers with the tools to deliver effective instruction. It is not a curriculum or a set of materials. Evidence–based practices use research–based data as well as results identified through a consensus among expert practitioners who monitor outcomes. While reading is the most basic of skills, teaching reading is a complex process that is often misunderstood. EBRI lays out effective evidence–based assessment and instructional practices. Practices include assessments in each of the four components of reading; lessons based on those assessments; direct, explicit instruction; effective instructional strategies and techniques; and regular monitoring of student progress.
