Millions of students linger through school struggling to comprehend grade-level text.

Fixing these issues can promote better comprehension and more fluent reading; therefore, functional strategies and targeted instruction are key components to successfully helping these strugglers.

This workshop is designed to efficiently deliver the background knowledge needed to successfully diagnose, group, and teach emerging and struggling readers in Grades 1-12.

Participants will leave this workshop with--
>>an understanding of why students struggle with decoding and the impact this has on comprehension,
>>tools and knowledge needed to effectively diagnose decoding issues in students of all ages,
>>resources to group students successfully for instruction that will yield the greatest improvements,
>>functional teaching strategies to provide age-/grade-appropriate decoding instruction in Grades 1-12,
>>progress monitoring tools to measure growth and adjust as needed, and
>>how to use student manipulatives to engage students and boost their achievement.

There must be at least 50 registered participants by July 12 to have this workshop.

In this workshop, participants will learn strategies to ensure their emerging readers establish firm foundations in the subskills that lead to strong decoding and fluent reading, including phoneme play, letter-sound relationships, encoding, decoding, onset-rime, rhyming, and sight word fluency. They will learn the most efficient methods to help students read developmentally-appropriate unfamiliar single-syllable and simple multi-syllabic words.

Participants will also learn how to efficiently diagnose, group, and teach young students and to help them develop the phonemic awareness and phonics they need to become successful readers.

This workshop provides tools that help schools build strong literacy foundations and supplement early reading instruction. Really Great Reading® specializes in helping educators teach these foundational skills to build confident decoders.
