In this edWebinar, the presenters share how and why differentiated phonics instruction helps students move ahead more quickly in their reading and writing. They cover three different models for making differentiation practical and easy. These approaches are flexible and can work inside any classroom schedule, whether you want to teach phonics in a whole-group setting, small-group setting, or a combination thereof.

Teachers walk away with a clear roadmap for assessing students’ needs, choosing or creating differentiated materials, and finding time for targeted, needs-based phonics practice. All viewers get access to a diagnostic phonics assessment to help them put into practice the concepts covered during the edWebinar.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-2 teachers and school leaders.
