The important role of phonics, in building the necessary foundational skills for reading, has been well documented by research over the past few decades. This asynchronous session will allow participants to discover how to create explicit, systematic, and effective phonics instruction in their classroom. Participants will learn about the pitfalls and obstacles in phonics instruction and ways to avoid them, identify the seven key ingredients for student success and how to improve instruction (Blevins, 2017), and identify look-fors in key phonics instructional routines to enhance your practice.

Welcome! This self-paced course is designed to explore improving phonics instruction. 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 five 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.
