They will also learn about CASEL, the foundation of SEL programs,* and receive 12 free K-5 SEL lessons.

*CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning) is the nation's leading organization advancing the development of academic, social and emotional competence for all students. CASEL was formed in 1994 to establish high-quality, evidence-based SEL as an essential part of preschool through high school education.

At present, 25% of New York City public school students have IEP’s and 61% of long-term English Language Learners were born and raised in the USA. With explicit instruction and sufficient correct practice, language and literacy can be taught. It is time to stop waiting for students to discover how to read and write on their own. In The Simple View of Reading, 1986, Gough and Turner posit that good reading requires proficiency in both reading and language comprehension. This workshop will address this simple view of reading, by providing instructional strategies in three of the five pillars of reading: phonological awareness, phonics and vocabulary, because mastery of those pillars leads to proficiency in fluency and comprehension as well. It will concentrate on building a foundation of word recognition skills and enabling teachers and students to build a large and varied working vocabulary and strategies for acquiring new words. It will specifically address the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students, whose language comprehension may not match the demands of the school system. Those needs include activities that include and validate the students’ language and experience, as English is constantly being enriched by language and experiences that are not “standard.” Participants will embrace the idea of expanding vocabulary, not substituting one word for another. They will discuss and practice strategies for using students’ vocabulary to enhance their own.
 
Participants will learn a variety of quick and easy activities and drills to teach phonological awareness and phonics effectively and efficiently. They will also learn to teach vocabulary formally and informally, using morphology, syntax and context clues, explicit instruction and correct practice in targeted words, and by embedding vocabulary development into every activity during the school day.
 
Participants will also practice designing quick and effective assessments which, instead of diagnosing students’ deficiencies, will reinforce skills taught and measure impact the impact of that instruction on students.
