Secret Stories® Phonics Tools

Applying the Science of Reading through the Brain’s Backdoor™

Teachers must be smarter than the reading and phonics curriculum they use. They must understand the mechanisms of phonics instruction, based on the science of reading. More importantly, they must be able to activate this knowledge in order to deliver it to the “end-users” who are beginning and struggling readers. This requires an understanding of not only how the brain learns to read, but also how the brain actually learns. Neuroscience carves a clear path, and it leads straight through the brain’s backdoor.
