The Big 5 of Reading
How many phonemes are in the word "reading"? How many morphemes? Does it matter whether or not you know the answers to these questions? If you teach reading, yes!
Teaching reading is both an art and a science, and both aspects are necessary for students to improve reading achievement. This workshop will help you gain a deeper understanding of the science of reading. We will be looking in-depth at each of the Big 5 components (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension) and how to effectively teach them. Participants will be able to directly apply what they learn to current instructional practice.
