Teaching Children to Read

National Reading Panel (2000). Teaching children to read: An evidence-based assessment of the scientific research literature on reading and its implications for reading instruction. Bethseda, MD: National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.

This report is the outcome of a congressional charge to assess the status of research-based knowledge around the effectiveness of various approaches to teaching children to read. The National Reading Panel sorted through thousands of studies and chose to focus the report on the following topics: alphabetics, fluency, comprehension, teacher education and reading instruction, and computer technology and reading instruction.  The report goes into great detail explaining the key findings of scientific research in each of the above sections.  There is also an extensive references section for each topic.
