This one-day course examines research on the essential components of effective literacy instruction to build a
language arts block. Participants will examine reading science frameworks and research on instructional design
to plan word recognition, language comprehension, and written expression instruction.
Scientifically-based reading instruction reflects research on content and teaching methods to maximize student outcomes. Reading Science frameworks illustrate the relationship between word recognition and language comprehension instruction on global reading outcomes. The reciprocal relationship between oral and print language (word recognition) is strong. By understanding these frameworks, and how these language components develop, we are better informed to design and deliver effective instruction. By coupling guidance on what to teach with knowledge of stages of mastery and cognitive load theory, we can better design instruction that supports students toward proficiency.
Lunch will be provided for all participants.
