You know how to guide discovery to help children improve their phonological awareness and decoding. And you know how to help kids apply, automate, and transfer these skills into reading and writing in context. You want to improve your abilities to help students become independent, eager readers with good comprehension, and you're eager to learn to apply discovery-oriented teaching with advanced English vocabulary. Well, this is the course for you!
The advanced course is mainly for people who have learned and practiced concepts & techniques from Introductory Linguistic Remedies. Students should be able to guide children to discover and apply phonological skills in reading, in writing, and in manipulating sounds in basic 1- and 2-syllable words. In the advanced class, students refine and deepen their ability to individualize instruction and to create a balanced reading program. Students advance their linguistic knowledge and learn how the history of English affects English spelling patterns and vocabulary. They learn especially how to extend the work with words with Latin and Greek histories and to integrate this to improve vocabulary and comprehension. Both Introductory and Advanced LR courses include some ideas similar to Dale (1898), Lindamoods (1975), and Henry (1990). But neither course is affiliated with these or any other authors or programs.
The Advanced Linguistic Remedies Class includes the 2014 Advanced Linguistic Remedies Manual.
