This Professional Development course will provide the participants with a hands-on blueprint in both understanding and applying the Common Core Foundational Skills. The phonetic code will be demystified with an easy-to-follow Voweletics™ instructional method. Participants will develop proficiency and confidence in understanding the basic phonetic skills required for excellent word decoding in single and multi-syllabic words; resulting in improved knowledge and teaching of reading and spelling. As stated in the Report of the National Reading Panel, “It is critical for teachers to understand that systematic phonics instruction can be provided in an entertaining, vibrant and creative manner.” This course provides instruction in exactly that manner.
This online course is open only to educators working in the AEA 9 service area.
