Lose the Rules: Reading and Spelling Multi-Syllable Words Made Easy
Learn how to teach students to easily and accurately read and spell long words.  The secret is to focus on vowels, not on rules. Participants will learn to use multi-sensory techniques to teach students to break words into syllables for reading and spelling. This method is explicit, systematic, and multi-sensory. It is also easy!  This session is appropriate for students of all ages. The techniques can be used in kindergarten to help students read words such as batman, sunset, and picnic, and in upper grades to help students read citadel, tranquilize, and Madagascar.

Recent Advances in Understanding Word-Level Reading Problems: Implications for Instruction and Intervention
This session will focus on how children learn to read words and why some children struggle. Understanding the nature of word-level reading development and word-level reading problems will guide both instruction and intervention. Studies consistently show that the most commonly used intervention approaches provide limited benefits for weak readers. However, other studies have shown that some approaches can yield very large reading gains for such students, and these will be the focus of the presentation.
