Structured Literacy is an approach to reading instruction and intervention that is forged in scientific evidence. While the term has been trademarked by the International Dyslexia Association, it benefits ALL students. The key principles of Structured Literacy instruction are explicit, systematic, sequential, cumulative, and diagnostic. This course explores the key components of literacy instruction- phonological awareness, sound-symbol correspondence, orthography, phonics, morphology, syntax and semantics- as well as the principles of Structured Literacy instruction through the latest research, best practices for implementation, and opportunities to rehearse specific instructional methods.
Intended Audience: General Educators
