The past fifteen years our field has focused primarily on the science of teaching reading. While not denying that teaching reading is a science, great reading instruction is also an art. Yet, it seems that this decade-long emphasis on science has been at the expense of the art of teaching reading. Tim Rasinski will explore how teaching reading can be both an Art and a Science, and in doing so, will lead to even greater improvements in students' reading, as well as their desire to read.
