Jane Seward (1,2,5) Elementary & Interventionists Launching successful readers is the goal of Pathways to Reading (PTR). The model is designed to assist teachers in understanding phonemic awareness and phonics and their relationship to the development of reading and spelling, preventively and remedially, and integrate the instruction with other research-based components of fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. With a focus on student engagement, participants will learn to differentiate and pace small group instruction and incorporate Dr. David Kilpatrick’s one-minute oral PA exercises. In addition, participants will increase their knowledge base with an awareness of the recent findings on orthographic mapping and its relevance to fluent reading. PTR training is for K-2nd grade general education teachers, Title 1, Special Education, ELL, Reading Specialists, and Interventionists at all grade levels. Title III funds may be used for this training. Title III funds can be used for this training More

K-3, Reading Interventionist, Special Education (1, 5) This module explores the nature of skilled reading; the progression of reading development; the reasons why many children do not become good readers; the influences of biological, linguistic, environmental, and instructional factors in learning to read; and the components of effective reading instruction. Special sections address scientific reading research and instructional leadership within a Response-to-Intervention model. LETRS 1 is a prerequisite for later LETRS modules. (all grades) Title III funds may be used for this workshop. More

Elementary & Interventionists What’s new with Pathways to Reading (PTR)? LOTS! Join Jane for a day to *refresh* and learn about new strategies and materials that support PTR instruction. We’ll revisit the instructional strategies and expand our current knowledge base about orthographic mapping. We’ll address dyslexia as a phonological core deficit and how PTR provides the necessary instruction in Kindergarten and 1st grade to prevent many students from long-term struggles. The new learning also includes the use of Dr. David Kilpatrick’s Phonological Awareness Screening Test and how to use it to address instruction to develop phonemic awareness to the advanced level with the use of one-minute oral PA exercises. Audience: Teachers & Interventionists using PTR Title III funds can be used for this workshop More

Elementary, ESL, Reading Intervention (5) Phonetics, Phonology, and Phoneme Awareness... While the term "phonemic awareness" is continually mentioned in reading instruction, exactly what this means often differs within reading programs and classroom instruction. LETRS Module 2 delves in detail into the workings of phonology and its importance in reading instruction for young readers and poor older readers. A progression of skills to teach and assess is clearly outlined, complete with interactive examples at all skill levels. The 44 specific speech sounds of the English language are detailed, along with "allophonic variants", or what happens to students when sounds are not represented as they should be. Issues of dialect and English language learners (ELL) are addressed as they impact reading instruction. Principles of effective phonology instruction are demonstrated. Student spelling samples from all grade levels are reviewed to help participants make connections between students' phoneme awareness and their reading and spelling skills. For grades K-3, and all professionals involved with older poor readers. Title III funds may be used for this workshop. More

Small group instruction is the goal of most primary teachers, however, the reality raises two critical questions: "How will I successfully manage a station framework?" AND "What resources are available that don't require hours of preparation?" Even our young Kansans can demonstrate independence and perseverance in a station framework where students move when a task is completed, rather than transitioning with a timer. Participants will experience literacy station tasks aligned to the KCCRS for grades K-2, and useful for intervention at 3rd & above. Participants will also receive six sets of literacy task cards - useful for station activities in their classrooms as well as teacher-guided instruction.

Module 3 - Spellography for Teachers: How English Spelling Works Is the spelling of the English language really as unpredictable as we think? LETRS Module 3 outlines five major rules that govern the spelling patterns of the English language, dispelling the notion that our spelling is truly unpredictable. Once armed with this information, professionals will be better able to understand the "what" and "why" of teaching the orthography of the English language and its connections to reading. The continuum of spelling skills addressed spans the individual phoneme-grapheme connection to multi-syllable patterns and types to teach, including work at the morpheme and word origin levels. Title III funds may be used for this workshop. More
