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.

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.

Equity through Teacher Clarity - Define the Gap, then Close It!
“What a student brings to the classroom each year is very much related to achievement in previous years: brighter students tend to achieve more and not-as-bright students tend to achieve less. Our job as teachers is to mess this up" - John Hattie, 2012. So how do we "mess this up?" Do students believe you can? This presentation focuses on how research consistently points to the need for teacher clarity. Clearly defined success criteria makes learning visible for both the student and the teacher, shifting student self efficacy from a foundation of general past failures in the math classroom to timely and clearly defined success based on a thoughtfully established progression of learning.

Starting Off Right:  Updates for K-1 Intervention from Kansas MTSS Team
Recent developments in reading research are refocusing our efforts for Grades K and 1. Join Kansas MTSS State reading trainers for a practical session on recent changes in the sorting and grouping processes for our youngest readers. During this 90 minute session, we will explore the critical components of Tier 1 and focus on how that work should expand into our intervention work. Leave with problem-solving steps you can use next week with your primary grades!
