Katie Garner presents: Leveraging Social-Emotional Intelligence to Fast-Track Phonics Skills for Beginning and Struggling Readers: How to Use Brain Science as a Road Map to Accelerate Learning
Discover how to use brain science as a road map to level the learner-playing field for learning to read! Help beginning and struggling readers become strong decoders instead of weak guessers AND make meaning as they engage with text across the day. Learn how to take advantage of already-primed “backdoor” neural pathways to fast-track access to all of the phonics code kids need to read and write. By aligning abstract skills with already familiar, “universal” experiences and understanding (i.e. having a crush, not getting along, getting hurt, being left out, doing what your mom or babysitter tells you, knowing where and when to be sneaky, etc…) we can leverage learners’ social-emotional intelligence to fast-track phonics skill mastery. In this way, ALL learners are empowered with the tools they need to become fearless codebreakers — and not just at the reading table, but across the entire instructional day!
