The Role of Foundational Skills in College and Career Readiness

February 16, 2016 4:00 PM ET Dr. P. David Pearson

Today’s College and Career Readiness standards stress the importance of close and careful reading of challenging texts and constructing sound arguments while writing. However, they also recognize that advanced reading and writing skills won’t develop properly unless students gain control over the foundational skills of decoding, word recognition, and vocabulary.

Join Dr. P. David Pearson, graduate professor at the University of California at Berkeley, as he presents a model for developing these foundational skills in a manner that naturally leads to those advanced reading and writing skills that ensure college- and career-ready students. He’ll share best practices and effective implementation models for successful PreK-2 foundational literacy programs. Participants in this interactive, research-driven webinar will also discover how they can leverage technology to support and motivate all emergent readers as they build critical phonics, fluency, and comprehension skills.
