The Early Learner Workshop is for all teachers of our youngest learners, both in pre school and primary grades. The workshop covers the foundations of reading instruction, even before formal reading instruction takes place. Teachers will learn how to assess phonemic awareness skills, and also how to build phonemic awareness with their students. Alphabet skills necessary for spelling and reading are complex, and are best learned in a multi-sensory approach. Teachers will leave with the knowledge of how to best teach the alphabet. Also, concepts such as rapid auto naming, fine motor, and comprehension will also be addressed. Teachers will also learn how to pace instruction, how to determine what skills are lacking in their students, and ultimately what to do about it.
This workshop has previously been taught as a hands-on workshop with a practicum; however, because of the nature of hands-on learning difficulties during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are opting to hold this workshop as a knowledge-based workshop with the hope that teachers will benefit from learning new information that they can implement with their youngest learners right away. This workshop is not eligible for scholarships.
This course is eligible for 15 hours of CEUs.
Note: The capacity for this course is 21 participants.
