In this webinar, Danielle Thompson discusses beginning and advanced concepts to help teachers advance their thinking about phonological and phonics instruction in an integrated way. Thompson reviews the Simple View of Reading and word reading and phonological development and introduces orthographic mapping. She also invites teachers to consider how we might integrate, rehearse, and master language through phonics lessons and beyond.
