Dyslexia in the Classroom: Quality Literacy Instruction for ALL Kids in ALL Tiers

Three repeat sessions of this workshop will be offered.

In this session, participants will become familiar with the structure of English words. Prior to instruction, phonemic awareness is a critical component in learning to read. After gaining this awareness, students must apply the alphabetic principle as they learn to read and spell. More than 90% of English words come from three language origins - Anglo-Saxon, Latin, and Greek. Letter-sound correspondences (phonics), syllable patterns, and morpheme patterns (the meaningful parts of words such as prefixes and suffixes, Anglo-Saxon base words and Latin and Greek roots) differ depending on the word origin. These factors influence vocabulary, fluency and comprehension instruction. Numerous instructional strategies and activities will be presented.
