About this event

Just Words Virtual Launch Workshop

*This is a one (1) day event - Tuesday, Jan 11, 2022


Audience: K-Grade 12: District/Agency Personnel, Literacy Specialists/Coordinators and representatives of other state/community agencies and higher education


Presenter: To be Announced



Just Words® is a highly explicit, multisensory decoding and spelling program for students in grades 4-12 and adults who have mild to moderate gaps in their decoding and spelling proficiency but do not require intensive intervention. The program is designed for students with below-average decoding and spelling scores and should be combined with other literature-rich programs.

Participants completing this half-day professional learning opportunity will be able to understand the research and student skills involved in Just Words instruction; which students would be appropriate for a Just Words class; and the principles of instruction, including explicit, sequential, and cumulative, that engage multiple learning modalities.

Just Words aligns with a school or district’s Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS) or Response to Intervention (RTI) framework of instruction by delivering a Tier 2 intervention addressing a sophisticated study of word structure with explicit teaching of ""how English works"" for both decoding and spelling automaticity. It is designed for students who can benefit from the targeted word study focus without requiring the more comprehensive intervention of the Wilson Reading System®.

This session is entirely virtual. Participants will be provided with the link to attend, and the presenter will provide electronic access to all handouts.

There is no registration fee for public school personnel attending this training. Non-public school personnel pay $220 to attend.
