Event description

Description

The AIU will be presenting LETRS Module 7 on 2/21/18. LETRS - Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling, is professional development for educators responsible for improving K-12 instruction in reading, writing, and spelling.

Module 7: Teaching Phonics, Word Study, and the Alphabetic Principle.This module provides research-based answers for teachers’ questions including, “Why teach phonics?” “Who needs phonics?” “How much phonics?” “What kind of phonics works best?” and, “How do I teach a lesson?” Phonics for reading and phonics for spelling are compared and distinguished. Participants practice the basic routines of a systematic, explicit phonics lesson and consider which routine is needed when the learner is struggling with a concept. The module culminates with exploration of a complete lesson plan framework that will help students achieve accurate, fluent word recognition during text reading.
