Teaching Phonics and Spelling for Emergent Readers
- Course Section 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).
For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.
The number of hours identified for each course reflects time spent online, but does not reflect the total time spent completing offline coursework and assignments.
