This course is for you if:

  • You aren’t sure how to use letter knowledge and decoding data collected from universal screeners like DIBELS, Acadience Reading, Aimsweb, etc. to plan instruction.

  • You primarily teach sound-by-sound blending (e.g., /s/ /a/ /t/ → sat!) and have students for whom this isn’t working.

  • You want to know how to differentiate blending instruction for specific students using techniques such as continuous, successive, and backwards blending.

  • You're tired of trying to piece together strategies on your own through Facebook groups and Instagram, and want to take a deep dive into blending instruction taught by experienced reading specialists.

  • You want to learn and share ideas with a community of teachers whose students have similar concerns.
