For those interested in further developing their knowledge base and expertise in the science of reading, this webinar is not to be missed. Nationally renowned researcher, speaker, and close colleague of Dr. Linnea Ehri, Dr. Katharine Pace Miles, will review in detail the work of one of the greats in our field. Linnea Ehri's hallmark theory of orthographic mapping is widely considered the most substantiated theory of how words are stored in memory, yet, until recently, the theory was not widely known by educators. Additionally, Ehri's well known phases of word reading and spelling development (prealphabetic, early alphabetic, later alphabetic, and consolidated alphabetic) provide an excellent framework to differentiate instruction, but it has also lacked wide translation into the field of early literacy until recently. 

In this exciting talk, Dr.Miles will start with an explanation of Ehri's theories of orthographic mapping and phases of word reading and spelling development. Examples of the research that supports both theories will be presented. Connections will then be made to other theories and frameworks. These include David Share's highly respected self-teaching hypothesis which proposes that  once learners have established their knowledge of letter sounds and the essential process of segmenting and blending, they begin to apply this knowledge to new and novel words. Dr. Miles will then provide short hands-on activities to engage the audience with the material presented. She will strongly ground the theories into practice to ensure that they can be immediately implemented within classroom and other instructional settings.
