Over 20 years ago, Louisa Moats, EdD, published the article, Teaching Reading is Rocket Science (1999), where she examined the skills and knowledge required to teach reading. Preceding the monumental report released by the National Reading Panel (2001), Dr. Moats outlined necessary research-based practices to mitigate reading failure, especially for students with reading difficulties and diagnosed disabilities as well as English Language Learners.
