Webinar- Foundational Reading Skills
November 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Students must develop the foundational skills necessary to become proficient readers. Standards define what foundational reading skills students should be able to do (K-5), but standards do not tell teachers how to teach. Learn the predictors of reading success and how to implement effective, research-based strategies to accelerate reading development.
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) describe a vision of what it means to be a literate person in the 21st century. The English Language Arts anchor standards define what students should understand and be able to do by the end of each grade for reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language.
The Reading Standards: Foundational Skills (K-5) list the prerequisite skills all students must have in order to become proficient readers: concepts of print, phonemic awareness, phonics and word recognition (including spelling), and fluency. If we want our developing readers to have the capacity to comprehend texts across a range of types and disciplines as they move up the grades, they need to develop these foundational skills as quickly as possible.
Objectives for presentation. Participants will see how to best teach the foundations skills as they:
• Learn which foundational skills serve as predictors for reading success;
• Understand the research about critical content and effective strategies for teaching the foundational skills;
• Understand the implications of the research for instructional planning and priorities;
• Recognize the role progress monitoring and ongoing assessment play in differentiating instruction; and
• Understand how to apply best practices to their current curriculum and lesson design to maximize student progress.
