Systematic and Explicit Phonics Instruction for Early Reading and Writing Success
Course #
Graduate Credits
Grade Level

Teaching phonics requires an in-depth understanding of the processes and science behind learning to read, however many educators indicate gaps in their knowledge-base. This course helps bridge the divide with opportunities to explore the foundational underpinnings of phonics– the alphabetic principle, letter-sound correspondence, spelling patterns, and more advanced phonics skills like syllable division and morphology. You’ll learn about assessment structures to evaluate the needs of individual students and use our lesson template to design differentiated whole and small group instruction. You’ll gather strategies and routines for teaching irregular high-frequency words, learn the best approaches for incorporating decodable texts in your instruction, and support student practice applying letter-sound relationships through reading and writing. Perfect for general educators, interventionists, support specialists and special educators, this transformative course ensures you’re better equipped to address student errors with explicit and targeted instruction so that students come away with a strong foundation for future reading success.

This course format builds from module to module in a way that allows you to work through each of the essential ideas in smaller, more focused segments. You’ll find the same great resources and applicable assignments, distributed over 10 modules.
