This session will explore the advantages of a structured literacy instruction approach that uses mapping of sounds to letters (spelling) as a means to improve students’ reading and writing as well speaking and listening skills. The presenter will discuss the principles behind this type of instruction, which simultaneously integrates phonological, orthographic, and morphological systems and processes to build efficient neural pathways needed for reading and writing success, and provide practical ideas you can implement immediately with your students.
