Event description

Description

Participants will learn powerful strategies to teach essential skills necessary for strong fluency and comprehension. These strategies, when applied using an explicit, systematic, and age-sensitive approach, rapidly improve grapheme-phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary, and spelling. This method supports a variety of instructional scaffolding models designed to rapidly move students from foundational skills into reading comprehension. This logical approach enables students to effectively “break the code” of English.

The Reading Horizons instructional approach is based on Scientifically-Based Reading Research, teaching synthetic phonics (part-to-whole) in a manner that’s extremely effective with all learners, especially with students identified with disabilities such as SLD/Dyslexia. Skills are taught in a simple, familiar framework that accesses the brain’s language center to overcome working memory deficits and develops automaticity in decoding and other reading skills.


Those benefiting most from this interactive workshop are instructors who teach or provide instructional support in early literacy instruction or reading intervention, including literacy coaches, special education and ELL instructors.


This workshop provides hands-on involvement as attendees participate in acquiring the requisite knowledge and skills allowing them to effectively use and apply these strategies in the classroom. The Reading Horizons approach is one more tool that educators can use to help students master the skill of learning to read.
