UK DI Teaching Academy - Teaching Corrective Reading–Decoding

The National Institute for Direct Instruction is presenting open registration for in-person training in the United Kingdom for the first time!

Plan on attending the UK Direct Instruction Teaching Academy

NIFDI has a long history of providing the Gold Standard for training in Direct Instruction programs. Our trainers have trained tens of thousands of educators throughout the world to successfully implement DI.

Teaching Corrective Reading–Decoding

Corrective Reading provides systematic reading instruction to students performing below grade level expectations in grades four and above. This session provides training focusing on levels A and B1 with some training on levels B2 and C of the series.

Decoding A addresses non-readers by teaching sound-spelling relationships. Students are taught reading strategies for sounding out words and applying those strategies in context.

Decoding B1 and B2 refine word attack skills by introducing new vocabulary and promoting word discrimination. There is a strong emphasis on fluency building as well as comprehension. Practice for rate and accuracy and charting of daily fluency progress are features that help corrective readers catch up with peers.

Decoding C teaches students to apply the skills they have learned in prior 
levels to a broad range of material—textbooks, newspapers, magazines, and other forms of print. Comprehension is emphasized, including skills such as identifying cause and effect, main idea, sequencing, summarizing/retelling, and referencing text for specific factual information.
