Participants will learn how to assess phonological awareness, and learn planning strategies and instructional approaches that can be used to teach phonological awareness in face-to-face and virtual settings.

You may have seen Scarborough’s Reading Rope (2001), but are the details etched in your long-term memory so you can use it as a lens for viewing instructional decisions? You may have heard of the Four-Part Processing Model for Word Recognition (Seidenberg & McClelland, 1989), but can you explain how it functions in skilled readers? Learn how to anchor these three principles into your literacy practice.
