~Science of Reading Cohort - Virtual Series (K-8) - Presented by Melissa Gill

Hey, Educators! Are you looking for a safe place to reflect on the Science of Reading? Hear the evidence? Possibly learn with others in our region? Join WVEC's SoR Cohort to receive support, validation, and possible action steps to transform classroom teaching practices. A variety of resources will be utilized to show evidence based next steps for your classroom. 7 Mighty Steps by Lindsay Kemeny will be a key resource for thoughtfully reflecting on our practices!

This is the perfect place to receive support and assistance! As Zac Efron once sang, 'We're all in this together!'

September Session: 'If I'm not leveling, what am I doing?'
October Session: 'This sounds great, but how do I fit it all in?'
November Session: 'What is the big deal about explicitly teaching vocabulary?'
Jan Session: 'Why is everyone talking about a Rope? And what is up with Comprehension Instruction now?!'
Feb Session: 'Why is phonemic awareness so important?'
Apr Session: TBD

These virtual sessions will be held from 4:00-4:45 on Sep 25, Oct 30, Nov 27, Jan 29, Feb 26, and Apr 29. Each session will focus on a specific component of the Science of Reading. If possible, sessions will be recorded.
