MATTHEW SOLDNER, PH.D.

of Education discusses
his excitement with 

Learning Ovation's A2i

So how does Learning Ovations' A2i achieve these results? 
By combining a process that is research based and proven in real classrooms WITH the
SCIENCE OF READING.
 

But Did you know there’s more to the science of reading than just phonics?

EXPLICIT, SYSTEMatic INSTRUCTION

Students learn best when they are taught letter-sound relationships in a logical and clearly defined sequence. This is because reading rarely comes naturally. As rigorous scientific research has concluded, reading, unlike spoken language, can’t be learned through exposure alone. Phonetic instruction works to break literacy down into systems that can be more universally understood by all learners, helping bridge the equity gap and bolster outcomes.

did you know there are two other key areas that are just as important?

INDIVIDUALIZATION

Better learning can occur when student instruction is tailored to their individual characteristics. Applying this knowledge in practice requires understanding where each student is at, what they need, and what will work best for reaching these outcomes. With the help of the A2i Professional Support System, student needs are identified and individualized lesson planning is made possible through simple and easy to understand assessments and research-driven recommendations.

THE LAST COMPONENT IS...

SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION

The final Science of Reading component is the importance of teaching reading in small groups. This builds off of the idea of individualization, by providing the ideal structure for instruction. Because every student is unique and needs tailored instruction, the best way to then deliver this is often through small group instruction. This isn’t to say that literacy instruction should always be taught in small groups, in fact research suggests that a blend of both is best.

A2i's core utility is built on 13 years of collaboration and research. This work and the resulting findings guide everything Learning Ovations does. At Learning Ovations, we center our work upon the three main areas of The Science of Reading: individualization, explicit and systematic instruction, and small group instruction.

The core components of Learning ovations' a2i
is THE SCIENCE OF READING

In order to fix an issue, it helps to know the problem.  This video illustrates what we’re up against and how
Learning OvationsA2i is the solution.
