More comprehensive that The Simple View of Reading (Decoding x Language Comprehension = Reading Comprehension) is The Simple View of Schooling: Good Teachers x Good Curriculum = Good Schools. I learned this equation from a sixth grade class that told it to a famous visitor. Actually, they added another factor, Good Teachers x Good Curriculum x Good Kids, but I believe that good teachers and good curriculum produce good kids.

Since most of the teachers I have met are good, the failures in education must be due to the curriculum. After spending five minutes observing a current math or reading lesson, any sane person would reach that conclusion. We are cheered that teachers will finally resume their role in teaching, and that direct instruction in phonics will replace guessing sound/symbol correspondence through pictures.

Participants will learn a variety of quick and easy activities and drills to teach phonological awareness and phonics effectively and efficiently. They will also learn to teach vocabulary formally and informally, using morphology, syntax and context clues, explicit instruction and correct practice in targeted words, and by embedding vocabulary development into every activity during the school day. The syllabus is attached.

As the New York City Department of Education returns to direct, explicit instruction in basic decoding skills, they are recommending three programs: Fundations (Wilson Reading System), PAF (Preventing Academic Failure) or Really Great Reading.

A description of Really Great Reading is below, with links to its different programs. The June Fundations workshops have already started. Please check the Wilson Reading System website for future events. You still have time for the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education (IMSE). IMSE courses are a deep dive into phonics instruction, which will prepare you to teach any program.

Really Great Reading
  • Specializes in decoding instruction that makes a difference: Direct, systematic, explicit, and multisensory instruction in phonemic awareness and phonics.
  • Delivers research-based, scientifically aligned instruction in just 15-20 minutes a day.
