The District has embarked on a remarkable journey towards transforming literacy education by adopting research-based systematic decoding programs grounded in the science of reading. This initiative represents a transformative change in English Language Arts (ELA) education, empowering educators to deliver high-quality instruction that caters to the diverse needs of students.
The significance of phonemic awareness research lies in its potential to address learning gaps and promote educational equity. By identifying effective instructional approaches to develop phonemic awareness, decoding, and fluency, educators will better support struggling readers and prevent early literacy difficulties. The photos capture the enthusiasm and dedication of both teachers and students, demonstrating the success of this comprehensive plan to enhance literacy skills and foster a love for reading among young learners.
NBOE is proud to implement this bold endeavor and embrace the power of research-based and systematic decoding programs, ensuring Newark students are poised for success.
