Introduction to the Science of Reading: What Educators Need to Know
The science of reading is a body of evidence that unveils how our brains learn to read. Through the lens of Structured Literacy, we will uncover the crucial elements of reading instruction that are beneficial for all students and harmful to none. This will be an introduction to the series of sessions to come and participants will leave with a basic understanding of the science of reading.
The Science of Reading: What Educators Need to Know About Phonemic Awareness
In this webinar, we will build a collective understanding of phonemic awareness and uncover why it is arguably the most crucial component of structured literacy instruction. Join me for this discovery and practice session to strengthen your knowledge about phonemic awareness and fine tune your instructional routines to align with what the science says.
The Science of Reading: What Educators Need to Know About "Sight Words"
In this webinar, we will build a collective understanding of the processes involved in sight-word recognition. Join me for this discovery and practice session to strengthen your knowledge about orthographic mapping and learn about the secret reading recipe ingredients that support making the shift from reading with our ears to reading with our eyes.
The Science of Reading: What Educators Need to Know About Word Study
In this webinar, we will build a collective understanding of what word study instruction should entail in order to align with the science. Join me for this discovery and practice session to build upon your knowledge of explicit and systematic phonemic awareness and phonics instruction which serve as the foundation upon which multisyllabic word reading, morphology, and vocabulary instruction can be built.
