August 18: Let’s Talk About: Language and Literacy – Building Blocks for Reading and Spelling in English
Please join us on Thursday, August 18th from 4:00-5:00 PM (MST) to talk about using building blocks for reading and spelling in English. Shona Nichols will give a short presentation and facilitate a discussion on this topic.
Discussion questions will be:
- Language skills and literacy skills overlap but are not identical. What are the similarities and differences?
- Do you intentionally teach literacy skills in your educational setting? If so, how? If not, why not?
- What resources, knowledge, or support do you need as an instructor to help your learners master vocabulary, read more fluently, and spell accurately?
