Merging Explicit Instruction with Dyslexia Strategies for All Students - Assessment (via Zoom & Canvas Course)
What Works for Special-Needs Learners Works for All Learners

This course is aligned to the Effective School Framework Prioritized Lever 5 EA 5.1: Objective-driven daily lesson plans with formative assessments.

Practice, practice, practice. This is not always the first choice of human beings, and/yet if initial instruction is not yoked to judicious practice (I do, We do, You do), skills will not be retained. In this session, you will discover best practices for implementing well-designed, distributed and cumulative practice for ALL students including students with dyslexia and other reading challenges. You will also learn how to assess student learning through careful monitoring using corrective and affirmative feedback, while maintaining an orderly and positive classroom.

This course is based on the work of Anita Archer and Charles Hughes's Explicit Instruction: Effective and Efficient Teaching. This is a research-based instructional approach that empowers ALL classroom teachers to deliver instruction to diverse groups of learners.
