Why this workshop:
After building an understanding of the theory and research behind the Science of Reading, a logical question is “How do I incorporate this into my classroom instruction?” Current research demonstrates the effectiveness of instructional guidelines and routines that teachers can include in their instruction to support their students’ reading goals.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Develop a robust understanding of the purpose underlying evidence-based instruction
  • Cultivate practices and activities to build:
    • orthographic mapping
    • decoding and encoding for word
    • reading and spelling
    • sight word reading
    • fluency
    • semantic mapping and syntax.
  • Gain program agnostic resources to immediately apply in the classrooms.


Testimonial: “Dr. Ness’s classes are valuable for me because I gain tangible resources to use in my class the next day.”
