Investigating Language Using Explicit and Systematic Learning Experiences

Elementary and middle grade teachers use evidence-based concepts and resources in the areas of decoding, grammar, and spelling to learn about the implementation of Reading Writing Talking Process #4: Investigating Words and Sentences . The focus is on the integration of explicit and systematic instruction of decoding, spelling, and Standard English sentence patterns. Educators learn how to help students develop word attack skills, spelling knowledge, and context-appropriate use of Standard written and oral English.

Participants explore the use of Word Making and Sentence Making with students as well as other active learning approaches that focus on best practices: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, grammar, vocabulary, and comprehension.
