THIS CLASS IS OPEN TO SIOUX CITY EDUCATORS ONLY.
As indicated in another online course, Literacy Strategies: Improving Comprehension, the importance of knowing how to read can be summed up very simply: We must know how to read if we want to succeed in school and in life. Although this course doesn’t endorse any single approach to reading instruction, it is designed, instead, to share some strategies that have been effective in helping students learn to read, including defining phonemic awareness and phonics. We will isolate the strategies so that we can fully explore them, but remember that the strategies should be one part of a broader approach to teaching reading.
This is a self-paced course. Participants will work independently on the course content completing required assessments and journals. The course is organized into six modules and is completely self-paced. Lessons will be taught and goals will be met using a combination of text readings, external resources, activities, assignments, assessment and enrichment materials.
No Text Required
