The Science of Learning
Aug 29-Sept 1 st 8 am – 5 pm Monday – Friday
Many educators try to understand the “science of learning” and how to put these principles into practice in their classroom daily.
The science of learning simply means how to read, write, and what has been scientifically proven to work well. This online course provides teachers with the tools to approach reading and writing instruction using best practices. Educators will put several areas of focus together (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and writing skills), in order to help their students become successful readers and writers. Teachers will explore research-based information and support for each component of reading and writing as backed by science. Educators will also be introduced to a variety of best practices, and will add many tools to their already-existing expertise of strategies to help students who struggle in any areas of reading and writing. This course is a must for educators of grades K-12.
