A modern classic, updated for today’s classroom needs

No skill is more fundamental to our students’ education than reading. And no recent book has done more to advance our understanding of the neuroscience behind this so-critical skill than David Sousa’s How the Brain Learns to Read. To tens of thousands of educators, Sousa revealed at last how exactly young brains learn to make sense of printed language and how you can use that information to reach students of all ages and skill levels.

With so much more to be shared--and so much more to be heard--this second edition has been revised and updated to show what the ever-growing body of research looks like in an entirely new learning climate. Top among the many new features are:

  • Correlations to Common Core State Standards in Literacy and English/Language Arts
  • A new chapter on how to teach for comprehension
  • Much more on helping older struggling readers master subject-area content
  • Ways to tailor strategies to the unique needs of students with dyslexia and other reading difficulties, including those receiving interventions in an RTI or MTSS model
  • Key links between how the brain learns spoken and written language

No school can afford to teach reading skills from an outdated knowledge base. With this new edition of David Sousa’s modern classic, you can ensure a brighter future for your students, on the page, in the classroom, and beyond.
