Cape Cod Two-Day Seminars

Phonological Awareness, In-Person – Cape 2022


  • Delivery mode: In-person. All guidelines around Covid-19 protocols will be followed and communicated to participants.
  • Attendance: Live, on the date and time listed in the course information section.


Phonological awareness, the ability to think consciously about and manipulate individual syllables and sounds within words, is one of the key components necessary for students to achieve automatic word recognition and accurate spelling. This course will provide an overview of instruction in phonological awareness and its subtype phonemic awareness, integration of phonology in decoding and spelling lessons, and the current debates surrounding phonemic awareness instruction. Student examples will be used as case studies for discussion around appropriate lesson plans that build phonological/phonemic awareness with a focus on improving reading and spelling outcomes.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Identify weak phonological/phonemic awareness through the use of formal and informal testing
  • List methods to aid students in perceiving minimal changes within single and multisyllable words
  • Explain how students can associate speech sounds with the alphabetic symbols that represent them, and use these sound-symbol associations to spell and read real words, including multisyllable words
  • Create effective lesson plans for students working at a variety of levels of phonological awareness development


This course is appropriate for educators at the elementary level.


Materials will be provided on-site.


Participants may elect to add 1 graduate credit to this course. Graduate credit is an additional $125 and is granted by Colorado State University-Pueblo.
