Fluent readers know how to incorporate skills beyond phonics, including tracking, vocabulary, and grammar, while reading. Readers with dyslexia may find that these skills don’t come as naturally. This workshop demonstrates strategies for teaching these skills with all levels of phonics instructions. Participants will:
- Learn why effective literacy education extends beyond phonics to include tracking, prosody, vocabulary, and grammar;
- Understand the importance of teaching these skills simultaneously with phonics instruction;
- Engage in activities they can incorporate in the classroom or in one-on-one settings;
- Leave equipped with multisensory techniques to incorporate these literacy building blocks throughout phonics instruction.
