The Speech to Print textbook by Louisa Moats focuses on explicit, high-quality literacy instruction. Join us at ESU 6 as we gain in-depth knowledge of the structure and function of language in order to deliver structured literacy instruction. This training series will be an 8 part series and is a two year commitment. There will be 4 dates in 2022-2023 and an additional 4 dates in 2023-2024. Participants will be able to explain the speech to print correspondence system, the aspects of language represented by print, and the way that meanings are conveyed by words and sentences. They will understand morphology (meaningful parts of words), sentence structure (syntax), and ways that word relationships relate to text continuity. The application of language concepts to explicit instruction will be described and modeled throughout this series. Participants will receive the Speech to Print workbook as part of the materials fee. It is optional to purchase the Speech to Print textbook on your own if you would like to have the textbook.
