This is a series of three half-days, 9:00 A.M.-1:00 P.M. on Oct. 3, Dec. 8, and Mar. 14. We will dive deeply into the science of reading and what it looks like in K-12 classrooms. You will experience what it's like to learn to read first-hand and why students may struggle in that process. You will also be exposed to different student screeners and assessments, scopes and sequences, and the five pillars of reading, based on how the brain learns to read. We will cover the importance of systematic, explicit instruction and provide look-fors to use as you make classroom observations.
In this free workshop, participants will explore the Missouri Connections CIS360 Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) 8th-12th Grade Level assessments, modules and components. They will also explore the Student Course Planner from a student perspective, learn how to report on and access that information after their students have completed it, and learn what pre-work needs to be done before the platform is ready for their students to successfully complete their ICAP.
