Reading for Life examines and reflects on why so many people can't read and write and the reasons there are numerous and vastly different ways to teach literacy. This workshop bridges the gap between research and practice to translate academic findings into practical suggestions and ready-to-use techniques.
- Learn about working memory, processing speed, oral language development, phonological awareness and orthographic mapping as it relates to reading.
- Take away practical tips for all the pillars of literacy: phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
- Take the opportunity to discuss and share successful teaching methods, as well as successful school transformation guidelines.
