This three-part literacy series is for preschool teachers, paraprofessionals, supervisors, child care workers, kindergarten teachers, and others looking to build emergent literacy skills at the preschool level. The series was created based on current literacy research in conjunction with Ohio’s State Literacy Plan to provide practices to increase literacy for all students, birth through age five.

Series Dates

  • Part 1:     January 22, 2021  |  9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
    • Introduction to Emergent Literacy & Teaching Early Phonological Awareness
      Participants will explore the three components of emergent literacy, with connections to research supporting their use, and learn the significance of, and instructional strategies for developing early phonological awareness in children from birth – age 5.
  • Part 2:     February 12, 2021 |  9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
    • Developing Oral Language and Vocabulary for Emergent Literacy
      Learn the significance of developing oral language and vocabulary in young children, and how to build these skills in multiple environments – home, preschool, and child care centers through formal and informal instructional contexts. Participants will also learn to choose vocabulary from vocabulary rich read-aloud texts to pre-teach prior to shared reading experiences.
  • Part 3:     March 5, 2021 |  9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
    • Building Print Awareness through Interactive Read-Alouds

Modeling of questioning during interactive read-alouds will be used to demonstrate how to direct young children’s attention specifically to print. Participants will leave with a thorough understanding of how to use read-alouds to teach ALL components of emergent literacy using a variety of texts. Connections will also be made to developing early literacy skills along the language and literacy continuum.

  • Disciplinary literacy
  • Vocabulary
  • Discussion
  • Digital literacy
  • Multiple texts
  • Writing to learn

Administrators will learn instructional strategies that can be implemented the following day as well as develop understanding for guiding principles that will assist in the professional growth of participants.

Teaching Decoding to Adolescent Readers Series @ Virtual
Apr 8 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Ohio’s Adolescent Literacy Specialists and Literacy Leads are offering a variety of virtual professional learning opportunities throughout the spring.

Building and district administrators, educators, instructional coaches, teacher leaders, and consultants are encouraged to review the offerings and attend the sessions most applicable to their work.

[su_button url="https://www.sstr1.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/AL-Spring-2021-Sessions-Announcement.pdf" target="blank" style="flat" background="#7a7a7a" wide="no" radius="0" icon_color="#d63347"]View the full course list[/su_button]

[su_divider top="no"]

Training Summary:

The Simple View of Reading is a widely accepted model that explains reading has two essential components: word recognition (decoding) and language comprehension. Both domains are necessary for proficient reading, and neither on its own is sufficient. Many adolescent readers have not developed the word recognition skills required to be proficient readers in their content courses. This series will explore ways to teach adolescent readers to decode and use those decoding skills to comprehend complex texts. Participants are encouraged to attend all parts of the series.

 

Session 1 – April 8

Participants will learn the six types of syllables found in English orthography, why it’s important to teach syllables and the sequence in which students learn about both spoken and written syllables.

Registration Deadline: April 7

Session 2 – April 15

Morphology is the study of meaningful language units, called morphemes, and how they combine into words. Participants will learn about the meaningful relationships and origins of words, including how they sound and are spelled, their morphological structure, and how this contributes to vocabulary knowledge and reading comprehension.

Registration Deadline: April 14

Session 3 – April 29

Skilled readers decode words efficiently and almost effortlessly. However, readers who have not internalized this process struggle when faced with unfamiliar words. Syllable division rules give readers strategies to decode multisyllabic words. In this session, participants will learn basic principles for  syllabication and teach students to use them when encountering an unfamiliar word.

Registration Deadline: April 28
