During this one-hour webinar, Guided Language Acquisition experts will delve into language comprehension through a breakdown of the science of reading with an interactive demonstration. The session will focus on explicit instruction methods for background knowledge, vocabulary, literacy skills, and comprehension. Attendees will gain practical instructional strategies to effectively support these fundamental elements of the science of reading.

Discover the methods and rationale behind integrating research-based strategies suitable for PreK-12th grade, applicable across all content areas and languages, aimed at addressing:

  • Teaching complex academic vocabulary comprehensively
  • Integrating verbal reasoning into instruction
  • Scaffolding and differentiated instruction to support background knowledge

Attendees will leave equipped with a bundle of instructional strategies ready for implementation. These tools enhance oral language development, increase engagement, and cater to diverse learning modalities.
