Human brains are inherently wired to learn to speak, but learning to read requires fundamental changes in brain organization. Participants will explore how researchers and scientists study reading, learn where reading occurs in the brain, and examine how the brain changes when we learn to read. This asynchronous session will also explore what brain imaging reveals about struggling readers and how educators can rewire the brain through instruction.

Welcome! This self-paced course is designed to explore the reading brain. This is an introductory course that will provide a basic understanding. For more or additional information on any of the topics, please contact the course facilitator. Throughout the six lessons, participants will engage in readings, videos, reflections,  and multiple quiz-type activities that must be completed to complete the course and to receive CTLE credit.
