Explicit Language Teaching is the Heart of Structured Literacy

Structured Literacy Series

Renowned literacy expert and author Dr. Louisa Moats speaks to a topic that she knows intricately: Structured Literacy. Dr. Moats identifies the content and procedures for teaching Structured Literacy, and presents examples of how to teach phoneme awareness, morphological awareness, phoneme-grapheme correspondences, and syllable patterns within an explicit lesson framework.

Attendees will walk away from this informative presentation with new understanding of:

  • Why phoneme awareness is challenging for many students
  • Why language instruction must be explicit, systematic, and cumulative
  • The scope of information about language that supports learning to read and write
