This infographic depicts the five components of effective reading instruction: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. Phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency and vocabulary all build up to reading comprehension, which is the goal of reading.
This is a short overview from the National Center on Improving Literacy of what phonemic awareness is, why it's important, and a few tips on how to teach it.
This educator's Science of Reading toolbox provides strategies for teaching systematic phonics instruction within the classroom, including letter-sound correspondence, regular word reading, and word building.
The National Center on Improving LIteracy's Mission: To increase access to, and use of, evidence-based approaches to screen, identify, and teach students with literacy-related disabilities, including dyslexia.To build individual and organizational capacity to assess students’ literacy-related skill, identify students with disabilities or those at risk of disabilities, and fully implement evidence-based literacy programs and professional development.
This infographic shows that phonological awareness is like an umbrella. Rhyming, alliteration, sentence segmentation, syllables, onset and rime, and phonemic awareness all exist under this umbrella, with phonemic awareness being the most advanced skill of phonological awareness.
The National Center on Improving Literacy created this infographic, "The Science of Reading: the Basics" to help distinguish between what the Science of Reading is and is not.
This pamphlet shares activities to help parents support the development of early literacy reading skills through sing, rhyme, and play for students with reading needs.

This brief and accompanying infographic from National Center on Improving Literacy (NCIL) detail what screeners are, what happens if a student is identified as at-risk from a screener, and what parents and caregivers can do to support their student.
This Educator’s Toolbox, developed in Partnership with The Reading League Journal, uses an infographic to explain the critical role that phonological awareness plays in learning to read. You will learn what phonological awareness is, how to effectively teach phonological awareness to prepare early readers, and how this and other NCIL infographics can be used to promote awareness and understanding of evidence-based literacy practices.
