There is no doubt that the implementation of a sound wall supports the science of reading regarding how the brain learns to read and the importance of speech sounds. Direct instruction about sounds, or phonemes, can happen easily in Tier 1 instructional time, especially through the use of a sound wall. This asynchronous session will discuss the basics of setting up and implementing a sound wall, as well as how to integrate sound walls into daily lessons to support and increase phonological awareness.
Welcome! This self-paced course is designed to explore implementing a sound wall. This is an introductory course that will provide a basic understanding. For more or additional information on any of the topics, please contact the course facilitator. Throughout the four lessons, participants will engage in readings, videos, reflections, and multiple quiz-type activities that must be completed to complete the course and to receive CTLE credit.
