Reading is a fundamental skill for all students to master in school—including, of course, our students
who have low vision or are blind. But do you ever hear your students say “I’m just not good at
reading!” or “Can’t I just listen to this?” or “Reading is no fun”? Do you ever feel as though you have
to drag your students through their reading and writing assignments?
This series of six one-hour webinars will help you put the SPARK back into reading! Each webinar
will present information on a specific topic along with practical, kid-friendly (and teacher-friendly!)
activities that you can do to help motivate and captivate students to engage in reading and writing.
Topics to be covered will include:
• Phonemic awareness: The sounds of language
• Phonics and word recognition: “Hey! I know that word!”
• Vocabulary: Goodbye to “Mad, Glad, Sad”!
• Comprehension: Reading for a purpose
• Fluency: Reading on ice skates
• Writing: Every Child an Author
The information and activities shared will apply to both print readers and braille readers, with an
understanding of how the child’s visual impairment may impact learning in that specific area.
This package includes the a one hour lecture on the topics listed above. You will receive a link to the presentation as well as a transcript.
On completion of this course you will receive a certificate.
These are convenient and accessible and can be accessed at anytime. These sessions are presented by International and National experts including RIDBC staff. All the courses are accredited by the BOSTES and many are also accredited by Audiology Australia and AG Bell.
