Webinar 1: First Steps: Building a Strong Foundation for Literacy with Raz-Plus - Tuesday, 14 September 2021, 3.30pm to 4.30pm    

Research shows there are five essential pillars to becoming a fluent reader - phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. During this session, participants will learn about phonemic awareness, phonics, and fluency while discovering how Raz-Plus supports teachers and students with these three pillars. Participants will leave this session with trial access to Raz-Plus, which offers over 50,000 resources that can immediately be used in any classroom setting to support differentiated literacy instruction and personalized practice.

Webinar 2: Next Steps: Building a Strong Foundation for Literacy with Raz-Plus - Wednesday, 13 October 2021, 3.30pm to 4.30pm

In our last session we explored how Raz-Plus supports the teaching and learning of phonemic awareness, phonics, and fluency. Let’s now take the next step and discover how Raz-Plus supports the remaining two pillars - vocabulary and comprehension.  Participants will leave this session learning how to use Raz-Plus resources to support the transition from learning to read to reading to learn while also discovering ready to implement tips and tricks for any classroom setting. *Participants that did not attend the first webinar will be eligible to sign up for Raz-Plus trial access.

Webinar 3: The Final Step: Building a Strong Foundation for Literacy with Raz-Plus - Thursday, 11 November 2021, 3.30pm to 4.30pm

In our previous two sessions we explored how Raz-Plus supports the teaching and learning of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Let’s now take the final step and discover how the use of assessments and data forms a triangulation of evidence to inform instruction. Participants will leave this session understanding how to use Raz-Plus’s digital benchmark assessments and activity and skills reports.
