Full course description
Welcome to the Science of Teaching Reading! House Bill 3, passed during the 86th Texas Legislature, established the requirement that all teacher candidates who teach students in grades Pre-K-6 demonstrate proficiency in the science of teaching reading on a new, standalone certification exam. This requirement takes effect on January 1, 2021.
In this self-paced course, you will develop the knowledge and skills to provide research-based reading instruction in your classroom while preparing for the Science of Teaching Reading exam. A successful final grade of 80% or above on this course meets the requirements for testing permission for the STR exam.
