TARGET AUDIENCE: K-8 CLASSROOM TEACHERS, LITERACY TEACHERS, LEARNING COACHES/LEADERS, LEARNING SUPPORT TEACHERS AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND.
Join us for an intense, interactive, and data-informed day of exploration around the efficacy and opportunity of school-wide instructional design implementation to support students’ growth and development in phonics, phonological awareness, word work, spelling and vocabulary using Words Their Way. Learn about one school’s narrative journey around how this implementation has impacted teaching and learning, with multiple entry points and high exit points for all learners.
This session is designed for active participation, hands on/eyes on/ears on experiential learning, and embedded reflection to determine the efficacy of this instructional design and how it may apply in a small group, classroom, grade-based or school-wide context. Interaction, networking with a variety of stakeholders, and digital sharing is encouraged and expected.
This learning opportunity is being offered through curriculum implementation funding from Alberta Education.
