Goals and Objectives of this Course:
- Use provided prompts specific to evidence-based reading instruction and intervention for students with reading challenges or disabilities like dyslexia to describe assumptions and insights of practitioners, researchers, and self, including how the information relates to professional educational practice.
- Reflect on important concepts like the science of reading, the use of explicit, systematic, and
sequential approaches to reading instruction, development of phonological and phonemic
awareness and decoding skills as the concepts relate to instruction and intervention for students with reading challenges like dyslexia.
- Design or redesign, and implement lesson(s) using the explicit, systematic, and sequential approach of the gradual release of responsibility model and multi-sensory components.
- Prepare an activity to encourage student collaboration as a method for improving reading skills and/or increasing comprehension.
- Develop, in writing, personal and building/district level actions to challenge the status quo in
relation to reading instruction and intervention.
- Identify, in writing, methods for adapting instruction and/or content for students with disabilities.
