In Part 2, we will sort out the “ph” words, illustrating principles of instruction that lay a solid foundation for learning to read and spell.

The PM session, The Contribution of Syntactic Processing to Reading Comprehension will focus on teaching sentence structures and grammatical concepts that are challenging for students to process, examine the effect of sentence processing on comprehension, and explore some activities and techniques for enhancing syntactic awareness in students with underdeveloped language abilities.
