Decoding Instructional Strategies Part 1 of 2 (Live Session)

Live Zoom Session

The first session in this two-part series will take place on May 13 from 2 to 4 PM EDT. The second session will take place on May 18 from 2 to 4 PM EDT. Please register for and attend both sessions as they build on each other and each covers different material. 

Do your adult students struggle to decode unfamiliar words? Join the LINCS Reading and Writing and English Language Acquisition Communities for two live sessions on May 13 and 18 from 2 to 4 PM ET as Dr. Daphne Greenberg and her colleagues demonstrate a number of decoding and spelling instructional strategies. You will learn different tools for teaching letter-sound relationships, including tricky sounds and vowel combinations, two different approaches to decomposing multisyllabic words, and an organizational framework that can help our adult learners read unfamiliar words in an independent, flexible, and efficient manner.

Please register here for Session 1 on May 13 from 2 to 4 PM EDT.

Please register here for Session 2 on May 18 from 2 to 4 PM EDT. 


Steve- Thanks for posting the announcements about the two decoding instructional zoom sessions (Part 1 on May 13 from 2 to 4 PM EDT and Part 2 on May 18 from 2 to 4 PM EDT). 

I am excited that we will have an opportunity to share the decoding instructional strategies that we taught in our research study that was funded by the federal government as part of our larger Center grant activities (see We have shared these strategies at COABE and ProLiteracy conferences, and I encourage all of you who did not have a chance to attend our sessions, or would like a refresher, to join us. Many of our adult learners have gaps in their decoding knowledge, preventing them from becoming true independent readers (even those at higher levels of reading). Teaching them a few key strategies can help facilitate their goal of becoming more efficient, accurate, and fluent readers.
