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. Everyone is welcome to this course, whether or not you want CTLE hours or P credits. You will have fun and learn a lot.
Because we will be conducting this course remotely, we will email the handouts before the course begins to be printed by the participants. The second day of the course involves a hands-on vocabulary development project. Participants must be prepared with basic materials, such as scissors, paper of various kinds, markers or crayons, paste. Other art materials, such as yarn, play dough or whatever the participants have at hand, are most welcome.
