All essential components of reading, spelling, and writing depend on explicit teaching of language. In this session, we’ll contrast Structured Literacy with other popular programs, identify the theoretical and research base for Structured Literacy, and review what should  (and should not) occur during each of the major components of instruction. Emphasis will be placed on the foundational reading strands – phoneme awareness, phonics, and automatic word recognition – and their relationship with reading comprehension.
