Continuum of Decoding Strategies

➜ EXPLICIT—SYSTEMATIC—CUMULATIVE

a necessary stop on the road to accurate word recognition and fluent text reading

April 28, 2021

Presenter: Nancy Cushen White

Use of systematic decoding strategies is a reliable path to accurate identification of the vast variety of English words—simplest to most complex. While the alphabetic principle is a foundation of English orthography, learning to read and write is a process of increasing awareness and integration of phonology, orthography, and morphology (Berninger, 2010). Phonemic proficiency and grapheme-phoneme proficiency (Kilpatrick, 2016)—in addition to guided practice with use of explicit systematic cumulative decoding strategies for word identification—are prerequisites for orthographic mapping (word recognition).

The Brain and Memory - Plus Strategies

 

March 15, 2021

Presenter: Regina Richards

This webinar covers the brain, a discussion of memory, and study/learning strategies.  Students value by understanding how their brain works as this helps them appreciate memory strategies. In studying the brain, we will focus on various components which aid the learning process and how students can enhance their efficiency. The memory component will review the process of memory and provide strategies to enhance each of the various steps within the process. The sections on strategies will cover a range of strategies for different subjects. The strategies are designed to be especially valuable for students who struggle with learning but are also useful for ALL students. There will be strategies for all ages.

Teaching Morphology and Phonology Awareness to Improve Basic Skills

 

 

February 18, 2021

Presenters: KELLI SANDMAN-HURLEY, Ed.ED and TRACY BLOCK-ZARETSKY

Traditional phonics programs look at decoding and encoding words primarily through pronunciation and syllables. In this webinar we will show how looking at how phonology works in the context of morphology first can help students make sense of words for decoding and encoding. We will walk through how to conduct word study with a student looking through morphology and then phonology. We will show how studying any given word family allows for building better understanding of how the English language is truly structured.

IMPROVING SPELLING
TO MAKE WRITING AND READING GAINS

 

 

January 28, 2021

Presenters: KELLI SANDMAN-HURLEY, Ed.ED and TRACY BLOCK-ZARETSKY

Spelling is often left to memorization. A student may pass the weekly test, but then not be able to spell or even read those same words just days or weeks later. If students were taught the underlying structure of English spellings, they would be able to understand English words better to help improve decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling). In this webinar participants will get an overview of how English words do have logical spellings and how teaching spelling through morphology and phonology can help students with their literacy skills. Participants will be introduced to instructional strategies based on the STRUCTURED WORD INQUIRY approach to help teach spelling in a structured, explicit/logical, multisensory approach to assist all students in their classroom, small group, or individual tutoring lessons.
