Each 30 minute video below explores a literacy concept through its research base or the why, and then learn the how, instruction, necessary to put it into practice. We, as educators, need to understand the why of research and then the how to operationalize the research within our teaching practice.
Visit the Equipped for Reading Success Asynchronous Book Study site to participate on your own and at your convenience. Videos discussing the important information within each chapter and accompanying resources are provided. A manual may be requested for use while engaging in learning with the asynchronous book study site from the TTAC William & Mary Library.

This resource is out of print. Rosner-Program-to-support-EFRS-levels-.pdf (equippedforreadingsuccess.com) Dr. Kilpatrick's activities are based on this resource.
