What is the format of the seminar and what will you gain?
Actively participate in a hands-on workshop using a make and take setup.
By completing a short prereading and video assignment participants arrive prepared for the seminar content. A follow-up reflection will allow the participants to try out something they learned and reflect on how effective it was in their own setting. This will complete the 10 hours for the 1 CEU.
Explore the principles of the multisensory approach and the rationale (evidence basis) for its effectiveness.
Review the components of effective literacy instruction with a focus on the multisensory aspect.
Five Components of Effective Reading Instruction (Phonemic Awareness, Phonics – reading and spelling, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Comprehension) are basis for each part of the seminar and activities address each.
Use, practice, and apply multisensory strategies and tools to a variety of components of a literacy lesson at various levels from phonemic awareness to summary writing for comprehension.
Add new multisensory tools to your classroom toolbox that can be used in one-on-one, a small group, or a whole class. Brainstorm ways to reinforce or extend the curriculums and materials already in the classroom.
Develop an understanding of the metacognitive aspect of learning tools for students to be able to use and embrace strategies with greater autonomy and independence with ideas for developing this in students.
