Phonics instruction has always been about making meaning. Success means embracing the belief that systematic, explicit phonics instruction is always purposefully included in children’s reading and writing.
In this 1-hour PD webinar, well-known phonics expert Wiley Blevins will introduce the foundation of strong, core phonics instruction and how it is informed by the Science of Reading within the literacy classroom. Participants will explore the latest neuro-scientific research and what it proves about “the reading brain,” and discover how systematic phonics instruction can be engaging, active, and thought-provoking. Wiley will share research-proven tips to support empowering your teachers for impactful teaching.
