Teaching Phonics and Spelling for Beginning and Transitional Readers

Course Description:

Engage beginning and transitional readers and writers with research-based phonics and spelling activities. Study and discuss topics such as the principles which form the foundation for traditional versus contemporary perspectives on spelling instruction. Investigate better ways to help students develop oral reading fluency through learning letters, letter-sound correspondence and patterns and high-frequency words, then assess a student's skill level in spelling to set appropriate individual goals.

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