Speech to Print: Language Essentials for Teaching Reading
Tuesday, March 31, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Presented by Louisa Moats, Ed.D., President, Moats Associates Consulting, Inc.
Sponsored by Brookes Publishing
Reading and writing depend on language processing. Word recognition and spelling, contrary to appearances, are primarily language skills. Reading comprehension is enabled not only by vocabulary and background knowledge but also by facility in deciphering sentence structure and recognizing cohesive devices in text. Structured Literacy instruction includes explicit teaching of all aspects of language and is the most effective approach for any student who does not process the written word easily. This recorded edWebinar presents an overview of the concepts and language content that are essential for teaching reading, spelling, and writing effectively – the content in the Speech to Print (3rd edition) book and workbook. Viewers will gain insight into what there is to learn about speech sounds, spelling, sentences, and text structures – the language essentials for teachers of literacy.
This recorded edWebinar will be of benefit to educators responsible for teaching literacy or supporting intervention for students who struggle with reading and writing.
