Unlocking the Foundations of Reading for Learners Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing - Module 2: Essential Components of Reading
Staying up to date on reading research while meeting and assessing the literacy needs of learners who are deaf or hard of hearing can be a juggling act. This module series is designed to provide educators and practitioners with what they need to implement best practices and provide access to reading instruction for each deaf or hard of hearing learner they serve.
This module is the second in the series and will dive into reading research and how it applies to reading instruction for deaf and hard of hearing learners.
- Identify the Big 5+ ideas outlined in reading research that are critical components for literacy instruction for all learners.
- Describe the skillsets of ‘word recognition’ and ‘language comprehension’ and give one reason why mastery in each is needed to achieve reading comprehension.
- Give two examples of how learners who are deaf or hard of hearing may have access to and utilize phonological skills.
