Session Detail


Literacy for All! Designing Inclusive Literacy Learning Environments - Foundational Literacy Skills, Kindergarten - Grade 12 (focus on grades 4-12)






Many students in grades 4-12 lack proficiency in foundational reading skills and therefore struggle with comprehension.  The purpose of this session is for participants to understand why older students must be taught the literacy skills that are normally taught in grades K-5 and how to make the instruction age appropriate. Kindergarten – 3rd grade teachers are welcome to attend. 

During day one, participants will delve deeply into the science of teaching reading. On day 2, through grade appropriate, hands-on activities, participants will explore how cognitive processes associated with disabilities, including dyslexia and related disorders, impact the learning of foundational literacy skills. In this session, participants will build knowledge and understanding of how instructional supports, including the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Guidelines along with assistive technology can be used to accommodate and reduce the impact of a disability.

This session was developed by the Inclusion in Texas Network in collaboration with the Texas Education Agency and is aligned with the HB 3 Reading Academies.  K-3 educators must still attend the HB 3 Reading Academies to meet the requirements of that legislation.
