Research 15-20 years of research indicates thatgood readers decode first. (NRP) If they are behind in first grade, 1-8 chance they will never catch up after 1st grade.
Brain Research 80s students used context, syntax and then decoding. We now know that students do not learn to read in the same manner as you learn to speak. (Shaywitz, 2003)
Brain Research For a new word to become automatic, an average student will need to practice it 4-14 times. A student who is intensive may need to practice it 200 times.
Key to Moving Students who are stuck. Data has to drive you. Find the gap and fix it.
