Brief self-assessment quizzes are great tools you can use to measure your knowledge as you move from one topic to the next.
1. Alphabetic Principle vs. Phonemic Awareness
Alphabetic principle and phonemic awareness are vital skills for students to master as they learn to decode words. In this lesson, we will compare alphabetic principle and phonemic awareness.
2. Phonemic & Phonological Awareness: Definitions & Activities
Phonics, phonemic awareness, and phonological awareness may all sound really similar, but they are all different yet important skills required for successful reading. Watch this lesson to find out about each one and how to develop them.
3. Phoneme: Definition, Segmentation & Examples
Phonemes are tiny units of sound in speech. When phonemes are combined, they can make up words. In this lesson, we will discuss what phonemes are, how to segment them in words and why they are important.
4. Comparing Phonologically Regular & Irregular Words
While some words follow the common patterns and rules for sound structure in English, other words do not. This lesson discusses the sound structure of words and how you can distinguish regular words from irregular words.
5. Inflectional Endings: Definition & Examples
Inflectional endings can indicate the tense of verbs, whether a noun is plural, and whether an adjective is comparing two things. This lesson discusses these and several other inflectional endings.
6. Using Structural Analysis to Determine the Meaning of Words
Discover the importance of using structural analysis to understand unfamiliar words. In this lesson, we'll discuss how to divide unknown words into known pieces to comprehend their overall meanings.
7. Complex Phonics & Spelling: Patterns, Elements & Guidelines
In this lesson, we will learn about some complex phonics and spelling patterns in English orthography that affect how students learn to decode and spell words.
8. Understanding Consonants, Vowels & Syllables: Types, Structure & Activities
After watching this video lesson, you will learn how vowels and consonants come together to form syllables. You will also learn how you can teach this part of our language to your students.
9. Syllables: Types & Principles
Did you know that there are different types of syllables that can help teachers and students with decoding and spelling skills? In this lesson, we will learn how to break down syllables into six different types that can be used to teach decoding and spelling skills to students.
10. Factors That Influence Reading Fluency
Many things go into making a good reader, from word recognition to fluency. How does fluency factor in? This lesson defines and outlines the components of a fluent reader and shows how fluency changes in different situations.
