Phonemic Awareness & Phonics: A Window Into Exemplary Instruction

Course Description:

Reading and writing instruction should take place throughout the school day and across all subjects in grades K-3. This course will help you reflect on and refine your own teaching practices while learning new, interdisciplinary strategies to support the development of phonemic awareness and phonics skills in early leaners. You will learn:

• How language is acquired and how reading instruction should occur

• Teaching strategies that support the development of phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, and word study

• Techniques for assessing students’ learning and using that information to inform instructional decisions

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

For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.

Similar to an in-person undergraduate or graduate-level course, the number of hours identified for this course reflects the expected amount of time learners will spend online, but does not reflect the total time spent completing coursework and assignments offline.
