Spelling in the Reading Brain—the Missing Link

The latest research is known, but why isn’t it being used?  Dr. Gentry will explain what we know to be true about the science of the reading brain and the essential role of spelling knowledge. He will show you how to implement the latest research-based practice in your classroom to ensure your students are given the highest opportunity to succeed as readers and writers.

June 11—Lincoln Intermediate Unit 12, New Oxford, PA Completed

Kid Writing in the 21st Century all-day workshop

For Kindergarten through Grade 2 and Special Education—teachers, supervisors, principals

 

Kid Writing and Phase Monitoring has a proven evidence base showing beginning literacy as a global process that unfolds in five developmental phases observed in word reading and in developmental writing and spelling. Teachers learn best practices for connecting early writing with reading and learn to support, scaffold, and guide their students through five developmental phases from non-reading to proficient reading expected by the end of first grade. This work is based on a 2017 research-based staff-development book entitled Kid Writing in the 21st Century (Hameray, 2017) that sets the standard for exemplary literacy teaching in academic classrooms.
