Structured Literacy is an approach to reading and writing instruction that is forged in scientific evidence from the cumulative body of work referred to as the Science of Reading. While the term was originally used by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA), the framework benefits ALL students.
Developed in collaboration with former IDA president Nancy Hennessy, this 10-hour asynchronous course will explore the principles and content of structured literacy. The principles guide how elements are taught in a method that is instructionally sound. Structured Literacy aligns with the Science of Reading and includes the principles of effective reading instruction: explicit, direct, systematic, cumulative, interactive, diagnostic, and mastery driven. The content defines the elements of reading and spelling instruction. The elements of instruction are phonemic awareness, phonology, orthography, morphology, syntax, and semantics. The course will define each principle and content area, offering insights into the research base and some instructional examples for each tier of instruction.
