Rx for Reading - Fundamentals

This lecture and laboratory workshop provides JK to Gr. 3 educators with foundational understandings from brain research on how reading develops from a biological and cognitive developmental perspective and the instructional implications. The training focuses on broadening educators’ conceptions of structured literacy instructional practices that support reading success for all learners.

Educators will explore how reading impacts thinking and learning and examine the link between reading, spelling, and writing. Successful completion of this workshop will enable educators to use evidence-informed strategies to teach students basic reading skills.
