Webinar Video: Foundational reading skills


Presented December 2, 2015 by Karen Hunter, Read Naturally Educational Consultant.

We know that all students need the foundational skills to become proficient readers.

"The Common Core State Standards define what foundational skills students should have by the end of each grade (K-5), but the standards do not tell teachers how they should teach. Teachers are thus free to provide students with whatever tools and knowledge their professional judgment and experience identify as most helpful for meeting the goals set out in the standards."
— From Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects, 2010)

You can meet the goals by emphasizing skills that impact reading development and predict reading success. You can accelerate student progress by using highly effective strategies to teach the foundational skills to developing and struggling readers.
