Want to learn about the most up-to-date research-based practices for how to teach children (PreK-2) to read? Do you have students in your class that are struggling readers and aren’t sure how to help them? Have you heard buzz words like the science of reading, heart words, sound walls and want to learn more? Teach in a balanced literacy format but want to include important elements from the Science of Reading? This is the class for you! Our text, Reading Above the Fray, introduces researched-based instructional practices to help students get the foundational skill needed to read. These strategies will also help to move from a balanced literacy classroom to a structured literacy classroom. You will be surprised how easy it is to implement these practices in the classroom, and you will see how much your students will grow as readers!
