Tuesday, May 18th, 2021 – 9 am to 4 pm – via Zoom.
This workshop will be recorded and available to participants on-demand until July 31, 2021.
Designed to provide further knowledge to those working in schools, the goal of this full-day virtual workshop is to equip participants with the information required to select the tools and strategies necessary for a comprehensive approach to literacy instruction that is designed to prevent reading difficulties. Building on his August 2020 workshop, Dr. David Kilpatrick will introduce in-depth knowledge related to effective assessment and intervention.
During this event, David will
- demonstrate the use of the Phonological Assessment Screening Test (PAST), a free screening tool that can be used in the classroom on children from the age of four years and up;
- share student assessment profiles and discuss how to analyze the results in terms of strengths, needs, and possible intervention strategies;
- provide in-depth descriptions of effective intervention in kindergarten and elementary grades in the areas of orthographic mapping, (phonemic awareness & letter-sound skills), the alphabetic principle, decoding, and comprehension.
Participants will be invited to submit questions during the workshop, which David will address.
Please note: This workshop is a follow-up to Dr. Kilpatrick’s August 2020 presentation; participants who did not attend the August 2020 workshop have the opportunity to purchase access to the recording of that event and are encouraged to view it prior to attending this workshop.
