A spotlight on our recent edWebinar "Equity: We’ve Started the Work, So Why Aren’t We There Yet?"

As the COVID-19 crisis has forced schools to close their buildings and move online, inequities in access to technology, books, and even food have become more apparent. Still, there are ways educato…

Scholastic F.I.R.S.T.

Regardless of which side of the “reading wars” you are on, we can all agree that we want the same outcome for students–for them to be joyful, proficient readers.

In the late 1990s, the National Reading Panel, a group of expert educators and scientists, concluded that in order to become confident readers, students must master five foundational reading skills: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.

However, the way in which all students obtain these five foundational skills is where the research often varies, based on each individual learner.

We all want our students to read fluently and well—but the reality is that students acquire these skills through different practices and at different speeds. One size does not fit all. Reading instruction must adapt to meet each individual learner’s needs.

So what is the answer? At Scholastic, we believe the solution is not just one program or a single method, but rather what works best for each student to reach proficiency across all five foundational skills. The more adaptive and flexible the instruction is for the student, the better.

Our newest reading program does exactly that. Scholastic F.I.R.S.T. has reinvented the way students learn to read by combining highly adaptive, personalized learning with a robust and research-based scope and sequence, covering all five foundational reading skills.

Children prefer storybooks that teach them how and why the world works, study says

“These books invite young readers to explore how actions always result in a specific outcome and enables them to think more critically about the world and their place in it.”

A new study finds that children prefer storybooks that teach them how the world works, suggesting such content may be more engaging and could help motivate a child to read.
