S5 - Barebones Grammar for Reading and Writing: A Structured Literacy Approach to Sentence-Level Writing and Comprehension

Nov 11, 2017 10:45am ‐ Nov 11, 2017 11:45am

Standard: $20.00


An understanding of the function or grammatical roles that words play in sentences is a necessary precursor to developing fluent sentence formation and comprehension skills. In this hands-on, interactive workshop, participants are exposed to an explicit, systematic, inquiry-based approach to sentence analysis, formation, and comprehension. They practice with the concepts introduced and leave with tools they can immediately implement in their classrooms.

Learning Outcomes:

  • HANDWRITING/WRITTEN LANGUAGE: Identify effective practices and strategies for written language.
  • MULTISENSORY STRUCTURED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION: Recognize the nature of dyslexia and related language learning disabilities and the role of multisensory structured language instruction (MSL).
  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine effective practices for developing writing skills.
  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Identify effective practices and speech/language strategies for reading, written language, math and content area instruction.
