Understanding why some kids fail, despite quality phonics instruction.
Recorded Friday, 6 May 2022
Online via Zoom
Systematic Synthetic Phonics is an essential element of quality literacy instruction, so why is it that some students still fail to make progress?
If you’re looking to dive deeper into why some children are unable to connect letters to sounds, sound out simple words or build reading fluency then this session is for you!
This session is recommended for learning support teams, classroom teachers and literacy tutors. It is also suitable for whole-school professional learning.
During the workshop you will unpack:
- What is the science of reading
- How we 'map' words (orthographic mapping)
- What are the roadblocks struggling readers face
- What more can we do with a systematic synthetic phonics approach
- How Read3 supports at-risk readers
- How to 'stem the flow' of reading failure
- Classroom accommodations for older students
You will walk away with a clearer understanding of the complexities that struggling readers face, where their learning is breaking down and how you can support them.
Presentation notes and a recorded replay will be made available.
