SA1 - There’s More to Structured Literacy Than Decoding: Focus on the Element of Semantics


Nov 9, 2019 10:00am ‐ Nov 9, 2019 11:00am



Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

While decoding and word recognition skills are necessary for literacy success, so are language comprehension skills. One of the six elements of structured literacy instruction is semantics, and a primary component of semantics is vocabulary knowledge. Because vocabulary is largely acquired through reading text, and students with dyslexia read text less often and well than their typical-reading peers, this component of structured literacy instruction is paramount. We will present best practices for teaching vocabulary to students with dyslexia.
