Teaching Phonics and Spelling for Emergent Readers

Course Description:

Introduce your youngest readers and writers to the world of phonics and spelling with research-based instructional activities. Practice assessing the performance of emergent readers and analyzing students' work samples to determine their knowledge levels. Use assessment data to design appropriate activities for teaching letter-sound correspondence, high-frequency words, word recognition, and spelling.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.

Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).
