How to Help Students Who Are Not Good at Remembering Written Words: Understanding Orthographic Mapping and the Role of Grapho-Phonemic Proficiency

May 30, 2024 | 12:00 PM - America/Detroit

Webinar Overview 

More educators are coming to realize the central importance of phonics skills in helping students independently identify new words. However, less discussed is the reality that even with good phonics instruction, many students are still weak readers because they do not efficiently remember words. The presentation will explain orthographic mapping, the process we use to store words in long-term memory for instant, effortless retrieval. It will also explain why some students struggle with this, and what can be done about it.
