Disciplinary Literacy in Grades 6-12
The texts and reading approaches used in different disciplines (literature, history, science, mathematics, etc.) become increasingly divergent as students progress up the grades. The purpose of this presentation is to explore these differences and to provide direction for teachers in how to teach these specialized aspects of literacy successfully.

Understanding the Role of Phonemic Proficiency in Boosting Reading Skills in Struggling Readers
This presentation will focus on emerging research suggesting that proficiency in phoneme awareness skills is essential for building a large and continuously expanding sight vocabulary. This session will address the phonological skills needed to remember and instantly identify written words. Most assume that phoneme skills are limited to K-1 and are assumed to be associated with phonic development. Yet decades of research on orthographic learning clearly shows that phoneme-level skills are foundational for remembering the words we read. The skills needed for word-level reading and discuss techniques that promote that skill will be highlighted.
