We all know how important a foundation is to the successful building of a structure. The same is true for building a foundation upon which reading will grow. What skills will this foundation require? How do we effectively teach these skills? How can we ensure that our students have a strong beginning upon which reading can develop? Dr. Glaser will explain this and provide hands on teaching methods teachers K-2 can apply to strengthen their reading and writing instruction.
