Parents, The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has a video titled Teaching Children to Read. I have not viewed the video, but it sounds promising – and it’s free! You can go here to order the video. Here’s a little more information from their website:

This 20-minute video highlights the findings of the National Reading Panel, an independent panel formed by congress and led by the NICHD to evaluate evidence-based reading research in an effort to understand the best ways to teach reading. The National Reading Panel led to the Partnership for Reading, a collaborative effort by the National Institute for Literacy, the U.S. Department of Education, and the NICHD to bring the findings of evidence-based reading research to those with an interest in helping all people learn to read well. Available in VHS only. The NICHD can only provide single copies of the video at this time. To order multiple copies of the video, contact EDPubs at 1-800-228-8813 (TDD/TTY1-877-576-7734) or visit the EDPubs Web site http://www.edpubs.org/webstore/Content/search.asp.
