The Science of Reading Part Six: Critical Foundational Skills - Decoding

Stacey Mahurin, a Speech Pathologist and Certified Academic Language Therapist, dives into the decoding side of phonics skills. Ms. Mahurin explains how students progress through various stages of development and what concepts and skills students must master in order to become confident decoders. Although most phonics skills should be mastered by the end of elementary, there are advanced skills older students should continue to work on. Ms. Mahurin discusses phonics instruction for middle and secondary students and how to assess these older students when reading difficulties are suspected.

Critical Foundational Skills - Decoding is the sixth course in the 15.5-hour Science of Reading learning path. It was recorded on August 7, 2018 at the John Gould Fletcher Library in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The Science of Reading Part Seven: Critical Foundational Skills - Encoding

Join Stacey Mahurin, a Speech Pathologist and Certified Academic Language Therapist, as she explores the encoding side of phonics. Ms. Mahurin explains the stages of development, involving layers of concepts and skills, students must progress through to become capable spellers. Just as with decoding, many encoding skills should be mastered by the end of elementary but there are advanced skills and concepts older students must continue to practice. Ms. Mahurin discusses what encoding instruction looks like for middle and secondary students. 

Critical Foundational Skills - Encoding is the seventh course in the 15.5-hour Science of Reading learning path. It was recorded on August 7, 2018 at the John Gould Fletcher Library in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The Science of Reading Part Eight: Permanent Word Storage

Exactly how is it that we read and remember words? How does understanding permanent word storage lead to better instruction? In The Science of Reading: Permanent Word Storage, Professor of Psychology at UNY Cortland Dr. David Kilpatrick uses years of research, as well as his own experience working with students, to answer these questions. Join Dr. Kilpatrick in exploring how word-level reading and sight vocabulary work, why some children struggle in these areas, and what effective instruction for these struggling students should include.

Permanent Word Storage is the eighth course in the 15.5-hour Science of Reading learning path. It was recorded on October 19, 2018 at the Amy Sanders Library in Sherwood, Arkansas. This series was developed to help Arkansas educators meet the requirements in the Right to Read Act (Act 1063 of 2017).

The Science of Reading Part Nine: Building Comprehension and Writing Through Vocabulary

Vocabulary is one of the essential components of reading instruction, but it is sometimes neglected as it can be tricky. How can effective vocabulary instruction be squeezed in to an already limited schedule? Which words are the best words to teach? How many new words do students need to learn in a year?

In The Science of Reading: Building Comprehension and Writing Through Vocabulary, literacy specialist William Van Cleave leads our discussion on vocabulary and best practices that can strengthen reading and writing skills. The topics covered in this course range from the development of vocabulary and how it affects reading and writing to choosing and teaching words in a way that will benefit all students.

Building Comprehension and Writing Through Vocabulary is the ninth course in the 15.5-hour Science of Reading learning path. It was recorded on March 2, 2019 at the Main Library in Little Rock, Arkansas. This series was developed to help Arkansas educators meet the requirements in the Right to Read Act (Act 1063 of 2017).

The Science of Reading Part Ten: Morphology

Morphology, or the study of the forms of words, when embedded in deep research-based vocabulary instruction, helps students become better readers, writers, and thinkers. One of the perks of morphological study in vocabulary is that you do not have to be, or even act like, the expert – it’s all about exploring words with students to help them uncover meaning and deepen their understanding.

In The Science of Reading: Morphology, literacy specialist William Van Cleave explores morphology and how it impacts vocabulary, spelling, and comprehension. After reviewing the basic concepts and key terminology of morphology, Mr. Van Cleave shares several tools and strategies useful in vocabulary instruction that will help students develop the skills and confidence to explore words on their own.

Morphology is the tenth course in the 15.5-hour Science of Reading learning path. It was recorded on March 2, 2019 at the Main Library in Little Rock, Arkansas. This series was developed to help Arkansas educators meet the requirements in the Right to Read Act (Act 1063 of 2017).

The Science of Reading Part Eleven: Syntax Matters

Practicing with sentence-level skills is not just for elementary school, as it benefits older students as well. Syntax is the link between sentence writing and sentence comprehending for learners of all ages.

In The Science of Reading: Syntax Matters, literacy specialist William Van Cleave returns to lead our discussion on syntax and how its study impacts both reading and writing. Mr. Van Cleave provides a brief overview of parts of speech and their functions, as well as sentence parts and the types of sentences they can create. He goes on to discuss lesson structures and sentence-level activities that are useful for embedding the study of syntax into the content of any subject area.  

Syntax Matters is the eleventh course in the 15.5-hour Science of Reading learning path. It was recorded on March 2, 2019 at the Main Library in Little Rock, Arkansas. This series was developed to help Arkansas educators meet the requirements in the Right to Read Act (Act 1063 of 2017).

Teaching to Close the Opportunity Gap: Let Them Know

Stacey McAdoo, 2019 Arkansas Teacher of the Year, shares deep insights about why and how she provides opportunities for young people to creatively pursue and express their ideas. In these documentary-style videos, Ms. McAdoo is shown working with students in the safe spaces she strategically structures at Little Rock Central High School where she teaches communication as well as college and career readiness skills in the AVID program (Advancement Via Individual Determination). We also watch as she guides youth in The Writeous, a poetry collective she co-founded. Along with students, parents, and colleagues, this passionate teacher-leader addresses the opportunity gaps that exist for marginalized students, and she shows us how personalized, connective teaching helps students find authentic learning and growth.
