How do we prioritize the ELA standards as our methods of instruction have changed? How do we account for any unfinished learning? What are the best practices for teaching literacy during blended learning? How do we know which virtual tools to choose? These questions and more will be explored during this workshop that covers the critical components of literacy including phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, and vocabulary as well as the practice of close reading to address the reading literature and informational standards. We will dive into strategies for creating student-centered whole group and small group instruction, as well as ideas for implementing centers in either setting. We will then explore the virtual tools and resources that best support the varied needs and ability levels of a classroom. Lastly, participants will engage in a planning session in order to implement what was learned immediately.
