The Not So Simple View of Reading Series: Word Recognition (Part Two)

This professional learning opportunity is the second session in a four-part series designed to begin conversations around best practices of teaching reading. This session will explore the decoding or word recognition portion of The Simple View of Reading (Gough & Tunmer, 1986). The Simple View of Reading is a foundational conceptual model every teacher should know how to apply in their classroom. Throughout this professional learning opportunity, participants will have the opportunity to explore the underlying elements of word recognition or the ability to read words accurately and automatically. Many elements of this complex, multifaceted process will be explored such as concepts of print, phonological awareness, phonics, and sight word recognition. Participants will leave this session better able to provide more effective instruction.

Welcome! This self-paced course is designed to explore the decoding or word recognition portion of the Simple View of Reading. This is an introductory course which 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.
