Reading Resources

  • http://www.readinga-z.com
    Reading A-Z pays close attention to the National Reading Panel’s recommendations and other research findings when developing its reading resources. The student and teacher resources on the Reading A-Z Web site have been developed to reflect the instructional practices and reading strategies that are best supported by research findings from a wide variety of sources. The resources also correspond to the findings of the Put Reading First federal initiative.
    The results are organized around five key areas of reading instruction–phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
