The Big 5 Reading Maps, Interventions and Resources
The Five Big Essential Skills Maps for Reading & Helpful Resources

Thousands of studies of the teaching of reading, and how children learn to read, have been published in scientific and academic journals.

All studies placed an emphasis on teaching five essential skills for reading and that a high-quality literacy program must include all five components.
• Phonemic Awareness
• Phonics
• Vocabulary
• Fluency
• Comprehension

The recommendations were that students be explicitly and systematically taught.

The five maps, one for each of the five skills, indicate what should be included in each of the five areas and are accompanied by explanations of some targeted activities such as Repeated Reading, Choral Reading and Readers Theatre. There are also suggestions for evidence-based programs and a number of websites containing information and numerous resources to help you plan and deliver your lessons.
