CDL: Teaching Reading is Rocket Science: A Conversation with Louisa Moats

Revisiting the Rocket Science paper twenty years after its first publication was necessary because much has changed and little has changed. Paradoxical as this may seem, we need both to update our knowledge of reading science, and also to contemplate why it has been so hard to get colleges and practitioners to act on the science and stem the tide of reading difficulties.
