10:45 am -11:30 am ET: Connecting Writing to the Science of Reading: Foundations for Developing Readers and Writers With Lucy Hart Paulson
An increased understanding of the Science of Reading (SoR) is making positive and important impacts on literacy instruction. However, a focus on the science of writing has not had the same level of traction as reading instruction. Yet, a solid body of research supports the importance of interconnecting writing with reading instruction, especially in the early literacy time period. This session describes the developmental and interconnected sequences of foundational writing skills, with connections to reading; assessment strategies; and research-based instruction techniques to help young children build foundation writing and reading skills in the early grades.
11:30 am -12:15 pm ET: Raising Reading Achievement for Emerging Readers: In the Middle Lies Opportunity with Dr. Matthew Burns, University of Florida Literacy Institute
An effective multi tiered system of support depends on effective interventions at all tiers, but which intervention do you pick? This interactive session will demonstrate how to use screening data to identify the type of reading intervention that students need and will discuss specific interventions to address them.
