Changing the Way Reading is Taught

Shifting Gears: ECUSD #7 is changing the way we teach reading.

District #7 is dedicated to providing every child with high-quality, evidence-based reading instruction. This begins in our classrooms, specifically by giving our students the foundational skills necessary to become lifelong learners. Decades of research called “The Science of Reading” is guiding us on this journey, and we are just beginning.

Throughout the current school year, our focus will be on word recognition, while in the spring, teachers will begin to explore language comprehension more in depth with the goal to begin implementation of new materials to support these skills at the beginning of the 2022-23 school year.
