Teaching Foundational Skills IN Text

Students progress at a much faster rate in phonics when the bulk of instructional time is spent on applying the skills to authentic reading and writing experiences.  Melissa Barbee’s dissertation was on this topic.  It promises to be a great session!

 

5:00 - 6:00

Strategies for Teaching Foundational Skills

With the standards, we know what is expected of our students in regards to foundational skills.  In this session, participants will learn about some of the strategies that help students get there.

SRSD

At its heart, SRSD enables students to take charge of how they self-regulate their thought processes before, during and after writing so that writing flows freely and is filled with powerful voice.  Writing is critical to student success!

 

 

5:00-6:00

Running Records and Fluency

“Ultimately, it is essential to expand the way fluency is measured so that it encompasses more than rate and accuracy.”  Participants will learn about what fluency is and about the purposes and importance of running records.

Analyzing Student Writing

The observation and analysis of students’ writing can provide information about what students are understanding about foundational skills.  If we only look at children’s writing as “right” or “wrong” we are missing some very valuable information.

 

 

5:00-6:00

Teaching Foundational Skills Out of Text

Read to Be Ready calls for word study lessons that are “explicit and systematic.”  The following general structure has proven effective: mini-lesson, application, share, link to text.  Come to this session and learn more!
