This course focuses on how children learn to read and the best ways to teach beginning reading from pre-K to the end of the primary grades. Because the course contains considerable information on how students develop basic decoding skills, it is also useful for teachers and support staff working with older students who are still having difficulty with decoding and fluency. The course presents a synthesis of the research consensus for beginning reading instruction; and it provides the most effective instructional strategies— aligned to research that will help students develop phonological and phonemic awareness, knowledge of the alphabetic system, phonics/decoding skills, print awareness, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
Participants may earn 45 PLU’s or three graduate credits from Trinity University.
