Rx for Reading
April 28, 2020 - May 2, 2020
This lecture and laboratory workshop is designed to train educators, resource teachers, and homeschool parents to provide reading intervention in a group setting. Rx for Reading takes the five essential components of reading – phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and reading comprehension , which we call “strands of language” into a language brain that is comprehensive, constructive, and creative.
This course systematically teaches participants the methodology to develop these components. The participant will learn to identify and assess student needs in basic reading and then utilize the group model Rx for Reading to effectively and efficiently develop decoding and encoding skills in their students.

Tuesday, April 28, 5:00 – 9:00 pm
