Day 1: Science of Reading: Basis in Phonology: Participants will understand the rationale behind RISE training and begin to develop an understanding of the scientific theoretical models on which the training is based. Participants will understand that speaking is natural and reading is not. Therefore, promoting permanent word storage begins with mapping sounds to letters. Assessments and strategies for addressing instructional needs in phonology will be examined to connect the Science of Reading to classroom practice.
Day 2: Phonics: Phonics instruction plays a fundamental role in teaching students to read. Participants will learn how the Science of Reading supports this claim. Assessments will be examined and components of effective phonics instruction will be analyzed, which includes both regular and irregular words. Educators will be given a thorough explanation of the syllable types in our language, and syllable division rules will be explained in order to help students decode and encode words. For Grades 3-6 much of this instruction could be used at an intervention level to close gaps in Foundational Reading skills.
