Check out this webinar as we address common instructional questions related to teaching reading and strategies to support students at different stages of reading development. Common questions discussed include:

What are the differences between phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, and phonics and why are they important?
How do children learn to automatically recognize words and read fluently?
How do we teach children to comprehend texts they read?

These questions and many others around phonics instruction are addressed using the Confident Learners reading and intervention program. One of the key elements of the program is a structured and systematic literacy program, which guides educators through teaching children to read. The other key elements incorporated into Confident Learners Literacy Program are professional learning and leadership development, instructional coaching, and a simple assessment program, all designed to build educator knowledge and skills to improve the reading skills of all children.
