“The lack of phonemic awareness is the most powerful determinant of the likelihood of failure to read.” (Adams, 1990)

This training is ideal for districts and schools whose current literacy curriculum does not have a focus in explicit phonemic awareness instruction. During these two sessions, you will use the Heggerty curriculum to gain an understanding of phonemic awareness and its importance in a child’s ability to read.

Session 1:

  • learn what and why of phonemic awareness
  • explore the scope and sequence of eight phonological and phonemic awareness skills and the two early literacy skills
  • practice the hand motions within the lessons

Session 2:

  • learn how to conduct assessments
  • review progress monitoring in phonemic awareness
  • discuss interventions for students needing additional support

You will receive the book Phonemic Awareness by Michael Heggerty, and be given time to practice using the curriculum and learn from your peers in this engaging, interactive training.

Attendee Expectations

Participants will:

  • keep a journal between sessions to document questions, comments, and findings as they implement the curriculum
