Date: Friday, October 29, 2021

Time: 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. Central Daylight Time (Not sure what time this is in your time zone? Use an online time zone converter. Make sure to adjust it to the two time zones you need to compare!)

Presenter: Andrea Echelberger (she/her), ESL Training Coordinator, Literacy Minnesota. About Andrea.

Description: Phonics is a crucial part of becoming a reader, yet many adult ESL learners lack sufficient decoding skills to be able to sound out and recognize new words, and don’t get adequate phonics instruction in their beginning level classes. Learn phonics activities to help learners with blending, segmenting, and developing phonemic awareness skills. Participants will leave with multiple activities and suggestions for making phonics relevant and engaging to learners.

Please note that you may be asked to participate in discussion groups during the webinar. Please plan to join us from a quiet setting where you can see the PowerPoint slides and use your audio.

CEUs will be emailed to participants after the webinar, typically within 1-2 business days. Please note that if you miss more than 15 minutes of the session, we are unable to issue you CEUs.

Webinars are not recorded, but please check our training calendar for additional sessions.

This workshop meets the Literacy Minnesota Foundations of Remote Instruction Certificate Program requirements. Learn more about the certificate program.
