This MOOC-Ed is organized around the recommendations of the Foundational Skills to Support Reading for Understanding in Kindergarten Through 3rd Grade Practice Guide, published in July 2016 by the U.S. Department of Education's What Works Clearinghouse. The course is organized around four major research-based recommendations, with specific classroom practices to implement with students:


1. Advance students' speaking and listening language skills, including vocabulary knowledge and the use of academic language.

2. Develop students' awareness of the segments of sounds in speech, and how sound segments link to letters.

3. Teach students to decode words, analyze words parts, and write and recognize words.

4. Support students' development of reading accuracy, fluency, and comprehension through reading connected text.

While focused on students in kindergarten through 3rd grade, the recommendations are also relevant for teachers working with older students who need reading remediation.

Please refer to the web link or contact Dr. Lynn Angus Ramos via email (lynn_angus@dekalbschoolsga.org) if you have any questions.
