The Biliteracy Series provides various sessions to support Kindergarten through 2nd grade students as they develop biliteracy skills. The sessions will provide an opportunity for participants to explore all four language domains with a focus on reading and writing instruction that is designed specifically for students in a bilingual classroom. Participants will also build a deeper understanding for making metalinguistic connections and integrating sociocultural competence that is necessary for success in the bilingual classroom.
In this session, participants will:
review how phonological awareness is developed in English
explore activities for developing phonological awareness
review phonics development in English
observe an explicit phonics lesson
