Literacy Live! Elementary: Orthographic Mapping

Literacy Live! is a virtual professional development opportunity for Mississippi Classroom Teachers. 

Orthographic Mapping 

Session goals:

        Define orthographic mapping and examine the research.

        Explore the relationship between unitization, sight words, and fluency.

        Learn ways to teach orthographic mapping.

        Discuss orthographic mapping activities in the classroom.

Description: The brain reads by breaking words into sounds. It is naturally wired for speech, but not for reading. The brain relies on other systems already in place, mostly in the brain’s language center, to work together to read. Through this presentation, we will explore the relationship between unitization sight words, and fluency. We will also explore how to incorporate orthographic mapping activities in the classroom to ensure reading success.

This course will be held form 3:00-4:30 PM
