- Identify types of language knowledge, such as emerging mental orthographic representations for sight (automatic) word recognition and basic morphological knowledge that contribute to early literacy skills.
- Recognize systematic ways of learning, practicing, and applying knowledge about sounds, letters, and meanings of spoken and written words.
- Identify evidence -based, multi-linguistic activities that simultaneously engage and functionally intergrade a student’s oral and written language systems.
- Recognize the developmental phonological progression in teaching phonological awareness skills, leveraging the biological system of oral language through phoneme-to-grapheme mapping for more effective teaching of phonic skills.
- Identify the essential tools in the classroom to deliver the use of tools and methods of instruction to use—and not use—to develop sight word automaticity for reading and writing fluency.
