Spotlight Sessions: Webinars for Educators
Students need explicit instruction around basic and advanced decoding skills. In this webinar, we will cover the following strategies, skills, and expectancies designed to help develop a student’s decoding, automaticity, and vocabulary: 1) Creating a shared language between the teacher and the student; 2) Following a logical scope and sequence to build on learned patterns and skills; 3) Combining encoding and decoding instruction; 4) Using error analysis to inform future lessons; 5) Spiraling back to previously learned ideas and expectancies throughout the year in order to determine mastery; 6) Utilizing discovery-based instruction.
Any materials will be shared electronically.
