When school moved online, many students missed significant instruction in English and English language arts. Carol Jago will demonstrate methods for accelerating the acquisition of skills and building the habits of mind that help students become bi-literate: capable of reading proficiently in both digital and traditional media. Learn methods for bridging from what students know to what they need to know.
The texts students encounter online and in print often contain multiple layers of meaning, not all of which are apparent to students upon a single superficial reading. While skimming and scanning is an important survival skill, students also need to learn to slow down, draw inferences, and unlock meaning in complex text. Learn methods for helping students develop confidence in their own ability to comprehend.
In this webinar we explore the important developmental and instructional relationships among the foundational skills: 1) Print Concepts; 2) Phonological/Phonemic Awareness; 3) Phonics and Word Recognition; and 4) Fluency. By appropriately determining the timing, pacing, and type of instruction for these skills, we ensure that more children will successfully attain their potential in reading by the end of third grade. For those children who still struggle, we will better be able to adjust instruction appropriately and effectively.
“The science of reading” is a phrase that is used frequently. However, what it means is sometimes unclear. In this webinar we will review a small but important set of findings, instructional practices, and guiding principles that have been established across the past four decades of reading research. Information will be provided in a way that allows educators to understand what the science of reading tells us about how children learn to read, what forms of reading instruction and strategies are most effective, and what the evidence tells us about reading difficulties.
In this webinar, Dr. Anne E. Cunningham, Professor, Cognition and Development, UC Berkeley, provides the best practices for early reading development that will nurture and lead to avid readers.
Join Kylene Beers and Robert E. Probst as they share more about the Notice and Note Signposts, as well as strategies educators, can use to help students become better readers.
