Teaching Reading can be somewhat of a daunting task. Sometimes
we don't always have the answers of when and where to use the many different combinations
of letters and sounds of the English language. It takes more than just being exposed
to books and words on paper. Reading must be taught. For many children and adults,
reading must be taught explicitly, and systematically, one step at a time. That
is why the more training you have, and the more reading strategies you can
employ, the more success you will see in those you are
helping learn how to read.
We have gathered together some very useful tools to help you become better at teaching
reading. Here you'll find access to our free Online Teaching Workshop, an online
tool that instructs how to effectively teach reading with phonics, as well as many
other free online resources.
