The modules will discuss the need to teach reading explicitly and present a teaching sequence and activities to introduce reading skills. The workshops span reading instruction in Kindergarten where the emphasis is on phonological awareness and phonics, to reading instruction in Std. IV, where comprehension is emphasized. The focus of the workshops is on strategies that teachers can implement in their classrooms to enhance decoding and comprehension skills.
