Reaching Young Children Who Need More Time to Master the Reading

Focus on: Grades K - 3
Course Number: TEED565N

In every classroom, some children take longer to master beginning reading skills. Teachers, therefore, need to develop a variety of materials and approaches to help all children, and particularly those having difficulty learning to read. We will discuss and demonstrate strategies you can use to enhance children's decoding and encoding skills.

We will also review methods and engage in activities designed to improve reading comprehension skills. You will have the opportunity to explore how you can use these techniques in your individual school settings. Some teaching experience is required.

Course timetable: April 13 – May 4 (Pending curriculum committee approval)
