The Foundational Skills Mini-Course dives into the content of literacy foundational skills, with an emphasis on phonological awareness, phonics, and how these connect to early reading. Instructional guidelines and concrete recommendations for teacher practice are also explored.
The goals for this module are:
- Explain why and how practice is essential to student skill development.
- Distinguish between strong and weak practice opportunities for students.
- Identify ways to support fluency instruction from K-2 and beyond.
