In literacy-rich classrooms, many children learn the skills and strategies necessary for reading and writing through engagement in meaningful activities. Songs, poems, games, chants, listening comprehension, and classroom discussions all help children to pick up new vocabularies, understand the similarities and differences in language, and develop phonemic awareness.
However, it is important for educators to accommodate diverse learners and to adjust teaching strategies to meet individual needs. Some children need explicit, systematic, and direct instruction to master the skills and strategies necessary for reading and writing, and educators have opportunities to modify instruction to achieve a balance between meaningful activities and foundational skills practice.
Join Marisa Russo for this engaging edWebinar as she reviews effective interventions for struggling readers and explores online, research-driven tools that differentiate instruction in foundational reading skills, frontload vocabulary for ELLs, and ensure that teachers are supported in meeting the needs of diverse learners. There will be time for questions after the presentation. Everyone interested in K-12 literacy is invited to attend this event, including general and special education teachers, ELL specialists, librarians, and administrators.
