Virtual Science of Reading Series

July 13, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

NEW Virtual Training! We’re now offering the Science of Reading Professional Learning Series which teaches critical components of literacy instruction for Grades K-2. Each module integrates current research and translates it into classroom application.

The series consists of ten 2-hour facilitated, synchronous modules held via Zoom and continued learning through asynchronous materials and follow up activities via Google Classroom. These modules address questions such as:

  • What happens in the brain when we read? How can this understanding inform our instruction?
  • How is reading related to oral language?
  • What are high-leverage instructional routines that support reading acquisition?
  • What role does automaticity play in becoming a proficient reader?
  • What cognitive processes are involved in deeply understanding text?
  • How do we know we are using the right assessments to determine student need?
  • . . . and much more!

We’re also now offering the option of 3 graduate credits for an added fee. This will require the completion of additional assignments and a final project.

Dates & Topics

Please note: Registration is for the entire series. Each training session will be recorded and posted in the Google classroom in case of any absences or need for a refresher.
