EEDUC 6039 Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling in the Reading/Writing Classroom (K-3)

This course offers educators the opportunity to learn the role that phonics, phonological awareness, vocabulary, spelling, and word study instruction play in learning to read and write. Participants expand their knowledge of the alphabetic principle and how words work, develop an understanding of the essential elements of a word study curriculum, learn how to assess students’ reading and writing for phonics and spelling knowledge, and use a continuum of word study to plan for instruction. Attention will be given to supporting English language learners and to students who have difficulty learning to read and write.
