Structured Literacy - What, Why, Who, and How?

Category: Academic Supports (Regional Training)
Posted on 10/22/2020
Do your students struggle with literacy? Do you have struggling readers in your class? In this course, participants will first be provided with a brief overview related to the reading brain and dyslexia. Then, participants will take a deep dive into structured literacy, an instructional approach used to explicitly, systematically/cumulatively, and diagnostically teach reading. The term was coined by the International Dyslexia Association to encompass evidence-based approaches (e.g., Orton Gillingham) and programs that are aligned to the Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading. Participants will walk away with an understanding of structured literacy and how to apply it through explicit, multi-sensory, structured, sequential, comprehensive, and cumulative instruction.
