Virtual Science of Reading Series
January 10 @ 3:30 pm - June 6 @ 6:00 pm$350.00
The Science of Reading Professional Learning Series 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 2.5-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.
