Evidence-based writing practices make a difference, as shown in the assessment, instructional, and brain imaging studies that will be discussed in this webinar. Join us to learn instructional strategies, translated from peer reviewed research, that you can use to help writers of all grade levels develop functional writing systems for integrating multiple levels (units) of language: subword, word, syntax, and text.
- Be able to explain why a student who can read at grade level is not necessarily able to write at grade level.
- Explain how teachers and intervention specialists can work with speech and language specialists and psychologists, who are credentialed to conduct assessments, to identify students needing specific kinds of instruction and evaluate response to instruction.
- Describe how speech and language specialists and psychologists, who are credentialed to conduct assessments, can translate assessment results into specific kinds of instruction.
- Understand why it is important to teach writing to all levels of language close in time.
- Be able to explain why it is important to teach both handwriting and transferring handwriting to
spelling and composing.
- Learn that English is a morphophonemic orthography that draws on not only alphabetic
principle in the spelling direction (not exactly same as in reading direction) but also
morphological, phonological, and orthographic coding.
