More information

Early literacy skills underpin later reading success. The research strongly supports explicit, systematic phonics instruction as an essential foundational skill related to reading success. This training will focus on the research evidence related to the components and application of an explicit phonics lesson for primary students in grades Kindergarten through Second Grade.
Participants will be instructed in how to successfully implement a direct, explicit, and systematic phonics instruction into daily classroom practice. Specifically, instructional practices shared will support students consistent engagement with the alphabetic principle and decoding skills. Assessments related to phonics instruction will also be offered.

Lunch on your own from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Optional work session to practice implementation and assessment of phonics instruction with the presenters and fellow participants from 1:30-3:00 p.m.
