2017 Reading, Literacy & Learning Virtual Conference

T19 - A Frickin' Elephant

Nov 9, 2017 2:00pm ‐ Nov 9, 2017 3:00pm

Standard: $20.00


It takes more than phonics to recognize an African elephant. Letters are the symbolic representation of the sounds of language. Being able to hear and produce sounds and words is the precursor to reading. Through a PowerPoint presentation and oral exercises, participants review the five pillars of reading and the foundation of writing with a focus on phonological awareness. Participants practice explicit instruction and correct practice in phonological awareness and the link to phonics.

Learning Outcomes:

  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine the conditions under which teachers can learn and apply understandings of language and literacy to more effective instruction of “at risk” students.
  • READING, SKILLS, & STRATEGIES: Outline the critical components for proficient reading including language development, phonological awareness, decoding, fluency and comprehension.
