Course Information:

This course is designed to give educators research-based instructional activities and pedagogical approaches to teach phonics and spelling to beginning and transitional readers. These activities help students learn letter-sound correspondences, letter-sound patterns, and high-frequency words, which in turn help them develop oral reading fluency. The topics and methods include principles that provide foundational skills. Learners will study current, research-based perspectives on spelling instruction. They will practice assessing a student’s spelling stage and then setting appropriate goals for that student. As a final task, learners will create a case study of a student.
