Report of the National Reading Panel
"Teaching Children to Read" | Reports of the Subgroups

This comprehensive report explains the methodology and scientific research used by the National Reading Panel (NRP) in its effort to assess the best ways to teach children to read. The Panel's thorough research on reading instruction was conducted by five subgroups, which focused on (1) Alphabetics, (2) Fluency, (3) Comprehension, (4) Teacher Education and Reading Instruction, and (5) Computer Technology and Reading Instruction.

This 480-page report contains an executive summary from each subgroup that introduces the topic area, outlines the group's methodology, and highlights the questions and results from each subgroup. In addition to the executive summary, the report provides detailed explanations of each subgroup's research methodology and the findings for each group.

This is an excellent resource for anyone who wishes to understand the science and methodology behind the evidence-based assessment conducted by the NRP.
