Beyond the ABCs: Evidence-based Practices of Alphabetic Principle and Phonemic Awareness with Malissa Farrish  | 9 AM - 12 PM | Rm 3110

Alphabetic Principle is the recognition that written letters represent the sounds of spoken language. Participants will learn about the plan and rate of instruction to meet learning targets for both individuals and small groups. Our focus will be on teaching the letters of the alphabet and letter-sound correspondence. This session is a foundational concept for teachers preparing to teach phonics as research shows that students experience great difficulty with phonics instruction without phonemic awareness.
