Outcomes: Participants will be able to articulate the link between the Big Ideas of Reading and the Common Core State Standards as well as describe the “what”, why” and “how” of phonics and fluency instruction. Participants will also be able to explain how universal screening data aligns with the Common Core State Standards Reading Foundational Skills and how its use is paramount in building a strong Multi-Tier System of Support (MTSS) Framework.
