Our purpose

The purpose of the Center for Reading Science is to support educators in implementing the science of reading in their classrooms and communities. Our center aims to provide trusted information and resources to help educators bridge the research-to-practice gap and provide evidence-based practices in preschool through higher education.

Our Projects

Below is information about the Center’s three project areas.

Higher Education Stronger Together: Alliance for Reading Science in Higher Education

STARS-HE strives to connect University faculty to share ideas and resources on implementing the science of reading in teacher preparation. The documents, resources, and engagement opportunities presented in this section were created to support higher education faculty as they work to fully incorporate the science of reading in their teacher preparation programs.

Resources for Implementing the Science of Reading in Kindergarten – High School

This section contains information, resources, and tools for educators working with kindergarten through high school students.

Project Ready!

Project Ready! is committed to eradicating the economic and racial achievement gap by helping schools provide comprehensive, high-quality early education. The open-access resource materials share on this site are part of our ongoing research project funded by The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. Foundation, Scripps Howard Foundation, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, and Mount St. Joseph University. We aim to create and share high-quality instructional materials, family literacy materials, and teacher professional learning opportunities.
