P240-8127.1M19 - RDLA257: Phonemic Awareness & Phonics: A Window Into Exemplary Instruction

Course Details
Course Description:

This course is truly for the practitioner who is not only interested in learning about how to help children cross the bridge from oral language to fully evolved literacy, but also for those who are willing to turn the lens on their own instruction with the mindset of reflection and refinement. In this facilitated course the learner will fine tune their understanding of the reciprocal relationship between phonemic awareness and phonics, and the role that both play in children's accurate and rapid word-solving, behaviors that serve as cornerstones of future reading success. Learners will read evidence-based descriptions of recommended instructional practices, as well as analyze and respond to classroom scenarios. Through required readings, and lectures, the learner will gain insight into teaching strategies that support children's development of both phonemic awareness and phonics. Via video, participants will step into the classrooms of various teachers to watch as they encounter 'problems of the practice.' The learner will have the chance to construct their own ideas of what went wrong, make connections to what was learned, and describe how to address this problem in teaching routines.
