Course DescriptionThe current emphasis on the body of research known as the "Science of Reading" has renewed the reading wars and raised challenging questions for balanced literacy teachers about the best way to teach reading. Instead of fueling the debate, this course organizes essential educational theory and effective instructional practices under a complete, layered intervention model. The course focuses on scientifically sound shifts reading teachers can make to strengthen their approach to early reading instruction.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Create aligned texts
- Evaluate classroom literacy programs that strengthen reading instruction
- Create lesson plans that use a layered intervention model.
- Identify what a teacher needs to do to help students learn to read successfully
