The English Language From A to Z: What K-3 Teachers Need to Know to Successfully Teach Phonics and Decoding
This course gives educators an in-depth look at the English language: its sounds, rules, and structure of phonics skills (i.e. digraphs, long vowels). Educators will also learn about the structure of multisyllabic words, including how to teach students to divide and analyze them.
All courses were developed by Alison Ryan, M.Ed. Alison has been working in schools since 2005 in a variety of positions, including classroom teacher, reading interventionist, reading specialist, and Director of Curriculum & Instruction.
