Increasingly, educators and administrators are being asked to describe how their curricula and instructional practices align with the Science of Reading. This can be a real challenge because the Science of Reading is vast, complex, and ever-changing.
In this edWebinar, an early learning expert will show you 5 ways the Science of Reading can guide great instructional practices for age 3 to grade 3 learners. You’ll explore:
- Conceptual models of the Science of Reading, and how to align these models to support strong foundational literacy development
- Best practices in early reading instruction that set students on a clear path to successful decoding and skillful comprehension
- Ways to promote the language and early literacy skills in preschool that contribute to early reading success
- Crossing the “boundary” of kindergarten entry—and how to best measure the progress of individual students and your whole program
This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, school and district leaders, early childhood directors, curriculum directors and coordinators, reading directors, and interventionists of the PreK-3 levels. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
