Structured Literacy: Reading Science in Ohio Classrooms

Literacy is critical to academic success. Yet, the majority of students in classrooms across the county struggle with literacy. This presentation will examine Structured Literacy—an instructional approach that integrates listening, speaking, reading, and writing—and three important questions: why it is taught?, what is taught?, and how it is taught?  When these three questions guide literacy instruction, we can prevent reading difficulties, provide effective interventions, and support learning across the content areas. 

Knowing the why it is taught informs the need for differentiated instruction. Data, reading science, and best practices inform what is taught and how it is taught. In this presentation, Ohio educators will learn the principles and components of Structured Literacy through hands-on, interactive activities that can be taken right into the classroom. They will learn the importance of knowing the articulatory features of phonemes; how spelling errors can inform targeted instruction; the benefits of teaching morphology; the keys to building vocabulary; and the role of sentence comprehension in supporting reading comprehension. The synergy of data, content, and delivery ensures that every student becomes a proficient and productive listener, reader, speaker, and writer who is able to reap the many benefits of literacy.
