Taking and Analyzing Running Records

A running record allows teachers to closely observe and record student's oral reading behavior in order to plan instruction. Participants will learn how to use standard markings to take running records, how to analyze the running record for accuracy and comprehension, and then how to identify what cueing systems students are using to plan instruction. Learn more and register here.

Word Study

Making Sense of the Six Syllable Types

Six written syllable-spelling conventions are used in spelling English words. Familiarity with these syllable patterns helps students know how to pronounce the vowels in words, how to read longer words accurately and fluently, and gives them a better understanding of spelling patterns. This online training will help teachers organize decoding and spelling instruction by giving them detailed description of each syllable type, the steps to implement syllable type instruction, and specific strategies that can be taught to assist students to decode multi-syllable words. Learn more and register here.
