This course is designed as a follow up from the Introduction to the Science of Reading led by NCCAT Early Grades Literacy Specialist, Gin Hodge. Participants will dig deeper into each of the five components of high quality reading instruction and will explore resources to support the explicit instruction of each component during face to face instruction as well as virtual instruction. This self-paced, five hour course will dedicate a session to phonological and phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, oral language and vocabulary, and comprehension.
Target audience: K-5 grades (Must View all 5 Sessions to Receive Credit) There will be a one hour webinar each month. Each participant will submit a final summary after viewing all 5 webinars to receive full credit for the course. We highly recommend that you take notes on each webinar (on paper or in a word doc) to assist in completing the final summary. There are no prerequisite requirements for this course.
