Teaching reading is rocket science, at least according to Louis Moats, researcher, educator, and author. Effective literacy instruction requires that you know and understand numerous concepts students need to master in order to break the written code of English and become proficient readers. This class will examine four essential components necessary for effective word-level literacy instruction: phonology, phonemic awareness, sound-symbol association, and syllabication and explore how you can easily incorporate them into your daily practice. Word Learning Essentials will enhance your reading instruction by providing you with critical knowledge of skills necessary for your students to become successful readers.
