The focus is on the teacher as researcher. Included are the five components of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension). We will also focus on word recognition, standards and assessment, critical and creative reading, and the reading and writing connection in a holistic classroom. We will answer the all-important question: How do you teach children to read and write?
