S3-05. Deconstructing the Rope: Sight recognition with Dr. Bruce McCandliss

Science of Reading: The Podcast

Join Dr. Bruce McCandliss, Professor at the Graduate School of Education of Stanford University, as he unwinds sight recognition, a strand of Scarborough’s Reading Rope. In the fifth episode of our series, Bruce explains the role of sight and word recognition in the science of reading and highlights the importance of the rapid integration of print, speech, and meaning. He also encourages listeners to be cognizant of the ever-changing, technological learning environment while nurturing young readers and writers. Quotes: “You’re continually developing the system of word recognition. It’s not a one-and-done kind of thing. It’s continually being refined; it becomes more and more automatic.“ “Word recognition is the ability to see a written word and then in your mind link it very precisely to how that word is spoken and what that word might mean.” Resources: Word Recognition in Beginning Literacy by Linnea EhriStanford University Educational Neuroscience InitiativeScience of Reading: The Podcast, Season 1 Episode 12 with Bruce McCandliss Want to discuss the episode?

Susan and Dr. Bruce McCandliss, a professor in the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University, chat about combining neuroscience with education. How does neuroscience help us understand the changes going on in the brain of a child learning to read? Why do some children struggle so profoundly? He shares his research into focusing the student’s attention on letters and sounds versus on the word as a whole. Quotes:  “Teachers play a huge role in shaping brain development for reading.” “This is where education and neuroscience are coming together to create a dialogue in the space of how we support children.” Resources: Bringing Words to Life, Second Edition: Robust Vocabulary Instruction by Isabel BeckWhere Is Educational Neuroscience? by John T.
