In this training, participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the scope and sequence of eight phonemic awareness skills, and its alignment to the Common Core State Standards. The presentation is research-based and will focus on the published phonemic awareness curriculum written by Dr. Michael Heggerty. Participants will observe a model lesson, engage in guided practice with the trainers, and time will be provided for the participants to practice the lessons during the session. The consultant will also provide ideas for intervention and ideas for monitoring students’ progress through phonemic awareness assessments and student writing. It is our goal that teachers will leave the training session ready to successfully implement the curriculum with their students the next school day.
This training is intended for schools and districts. Many schools and school districts find it helpful to provide teachers and staff with professional development in the curriculum in order to provide common language around the lessons, fidelity of implementation with the phonemic awareness skills, and consistency of instruction among classrooms. A deeper understanding of the curriculum helps teachers to see the importance of implementing phonemic awareness instruction into their literacy lessons.
