Marnie Ginsberg, Founder of Reading Simplified, is a reading difficulties
detective, who streamlines the science and art of reading instruction so
teachers can rapidly learn effective techniques that help students accelerate
to grade level and beyond. She also helps translate the latest understandings
from science into practical, easy-to-implement activities. In the late 1990s, Marnie uncovered that her 6th-grade language arts students, on average, were reading two years below grade level. After eventually finding solutions for her struggling readers, she led the development of the Targeted Reading Intervention at the University of North Carolina. Dr. Ginsberg expanded the resources and adapted the professional learning approach to provide Reading Simplified for a broader audience beginning in 2013.
