Virtual Science of Reading Series
July 29 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Tuesday and Thursday, repeating until August 12, 2021
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!
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.
