New Book on Reading by Karen Gazith PhD, ECP

Published: 22 January 2024

Karen Gazith PhD, faculty member in the department of Education and Counselling Psychology has written a new book titled The Power of Effective Reading Instruction: How neuroscience informs instruction across all grades and disciplines.

This book examines the research on neuroscience explaining the readings networks and the process that is essential to effective reading development. The book also provides practical information about the essential elements of reading and how to teach reading across all grades and all disciplines.

Given the grim statistics about poor reading proficiency with approximately 1/3 of fourth graders in the U.S. who struggle to read (the National Assessment of Reading Progress, 2017) and close to 50% of Canadians having low literacy skills (Statistics Canada 2015). this book is very timely.
