This course will present information and research about evidence-based reading instruction, and describe and model how to use instructional routines to enhance the delivery of intensive lessons. Systematic strategies and instructional routines designed to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of reading instruction for a-z letter sounds will be described and practiced. By the end of this course, participants will understand how and why (a) using instructional routines intensifies reading instruction, (b) strategic integration of reading and cognitive processing supports learners, and (c) assessment informs data-based individualization. Topics will include incorporating explicit instructional elements, intensifying intervention for at-risk readers, using assessment data to inform and refine instruction, and implementing instructional routines that focus on the essential components of beginning reading instruction.


Participants will:

  • Identify the main components of NCIL's Intensification Framework
