Practical strategies to accelerate reading achievement

Are you wondering how to accelerate reading progress in your classroom or school? What does the term “science of reading” mean? What does an effective phonics lesson look like?

Dr. Hall will highlight the important insights from the science of reading development and reading instruction. In the past, phonemic awareness assessment and instruction often stopped too early; Susan will discuss why phoneme manipulation skills are critical and how to teach them. Through video clips and live demonstrations participants will explore how to explicitly teach a phonics concept, subsequently embedding the teaching and learning cycle for transference.

Fluency research reveals that instead of focusing on repeated readings, teachers need to develop student automaticity in the sub skills of reading. Reading with comprehension requires an extensive vocabulary. Because students need to learn at least 2000-3000 words a year, teaching 10 words a week won’t be enough. How can we use “word learning strategies” to expand vocabulary? Comprehension requires more than teaching the commonly taught comprehension strategies such as connecting, questioning, inferring, etc.

Come and learn about new research that reveals how to think about comprehension instruction.

Susan Hall, EdD is co-founder and CEO of 95 Percent Group Inc., an educational company whose mission is to help teachers and administrators identify and address the needs of struggling readers.
