About this Talk

This presentation explores methodologies for teaching structured linguistic literacy to preservice and master's level teachers, focusing on effectively integrating this approach when using a mandated print-to-speech curriculum. Recognizing the critical need for educators to be proficient in both theoretical and practical aspects of literacy instruction, this session delves into a comprehensive pedagogical framework based on extensive field experience.

The framework emphasizes a multi-sensory, systematic approach to phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, and language development, aligning with evidence-based practices in reading instruction. Participants will gain insights into effective instructional strategies, including scaffolded lesson planning and differentiated instruction.

The presentation also addresses common challenges educators face in implementing print-to-speech curricula and offers practical solutions to enhance student outcomes. Attendees will learn actionable approaches to integrated linguistic literacy in their classrooms, regardless of the curriculum required by their school.
