Erasing the misery of spelling multi-syllabic words

Science of Reading Virtual Workshop - Developing Readers (Grades 1-12)

Register for this three-part virtual workshop. Educators will leave with: 

  • An understanding of the research behind how individuals learn to read
  • Strategies to align scientific research with classroom practices
  • Valuable insights to help you unlock the English Code for all students, including emerging, developing, and struggling readers 

Part 1 - Developing Readers 

The Science Behind How Students Master Decoding (3 Hours)

We kick off this three-part virtual workshop with a straightforward exploration of the research behind how the brain decodes increasingly complex words, and the processes involved in storing words for effortless retrieval. In this three-hour, fact-filled session we will explore:

  • Common explanations of the Science of Reading
  • Orthographic mapping and how words are anchored for automatic, effortless retrieval
  • How this body of research has an impact on teacher decision-making and student learning
  • The impact of early instruction on long-term success

Part 2 - Developing Readers 

Practical Strategies to Implement the Science of Reading with Developing Readers (3 Hours - Prerequisite Part 1)

We continue this three-part virtual workshop with an exploration of the practical application of the Science of Reading in the classroom. In this three-hour, activity-filled session we will explore:

  • What the scientifically aligned decoding instruction looks like for growing and struggling readers
  • How to use clear, concise language to easily deliver concepts to students
  • Ready to use instructional routines to provide consistency in your decoding instruction
  • Strategies to ensure your older readers will have the skills and knowledge they need to orthographically map the increasingly complex word structures they encounter

Science of Reading Virtual Workshop - Emerging Readers (PK-1)

Are your classroom practices aligned with the Science of Reading? Join us for this 3-part, virtual workshop to explore this important topic. Educators will leave with: 

  • Straightforward exploration of the research behind how the brain learns to read
  • Information about orthographic mapping and how words are stored for automatic, effortless retrieval
  • A practical, scientifically aligned, evidence-based foundational skill approach
  • Can be taught across a wide range of ages, ability levels, and settings (even distance learning environments) 
  • Valuable insights to help you unlock the English Code for all students and put students on the path to becoming strong decoders
  • Strategies to align scientific research with classroom practices

Part 1- Emerging Readers

The Science Behind How Young Children Learn to Read

  • What the Science of Reading is and how this body of research has an impact on teacher decision making and student learning
  • The how, the what, and the why of how the brain learns to read, store, and retrieve words
  • Why the alphabetic principle is a key concept to understanding the structure of the English Code
  • Impact of early instruction alignment with the Science of Reading on long term success

Part 2 - Emerging Readers

Practical Strategies to Implement the Science of Reading with Emerging Readers

  • What the Science of Reading looks like in everyday instruction
  • Clear, concise language to easily deliver concepts to students
  • Ready to use instructional routines to provide consistency in your instruction
  • Strategies to ensure your emerging readers will establish a firm foundation in the subskills that lead to strong decoding and fluent reading
  • Leveraging phonemic awareness and single-syllable word-level knowledge to easily attack multi-syllabic words
  • Teaching skills, not words, to allow students to experience long-term success and easily build a robust orthographic lexicon

BONUS - Part 3 - Emerging Readers

Reaching Mastery and Automaticity through Effective Practice, Differentiation, and Diagnosing Decoding Needs

Part 3 is available exclusively to those who have completed Parts 1 and 2.  It is a recorded, on-demand session, and it will automatically send to you when you complete Part 2.

The last part of this three-part virtual workshop is an exploration of key topics related to helping children reach mastery and automaticity through effective practice, differentiation, and diagnostic assessments. 

  • Key practice routines and strategies to promote automaticity with single-syllable and multi-syllabic words
  • Providing meaningful feedback to build confidence and endurance in reading complex word structures
  • Differentiating amounts and types of practice to meet the needs of all learners
  • Using diagnostic decoding assessments to answer these key questions: Which students are struggling with decoding? What types of words are they struggling with? What is the source of the underlying confusion?
