MOOC Opportunity: Teaching Foundational Reading Skills

The Friday Institute at NC State University is offering a MOOC-ED, Teaching Foundational Reading Skills MOOC-Ed, to help participants more effectively prepare students in grades K–3 with the skills they need to become successful readers.The MOOC-Ed is organized around the recommendations of the Foundational Skills to Support Reading for Understanding in Kindergarten Through 3rd Grade Practice Guide, published in July 2016 by the U.S. Department of Education’s What Works Clearinghouse. This Practice Guide, developed by a panel of expert researchers and practitioners, provides educators with specific, research-based recommendations for effective teaching practices. It focuses on the foundational skills that enable students to read words, relate those words to their oral language, and read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to understand what they read.
