March 18, 2021

Learning to decode is an important step in becoming an accurate and automatic reader. In this webinar you will be introduced to an effective decoding method called connected phonation. This instructional method helps emerging readers with the act of blending individual sounds in a word together to pronounce the whole word correctly. The connected phonation method teaches students to pronounce phonemes in words without breaking the speech stream before blending.

Dr. Selenid Gonzalez-Frey, the lead author of a recent study* about connected phonation conducted with Dr. Linnea Ehri, also shares:

  • Some difficulties students experience with decoding words
  • How connected phonation can help students overcome some of these difficulties
  • How connected phonation fits into systematic and explicit programs that teach reading
  • The instructional implications of using words made up continuant consonants to teach decoding before moving into words made up of stop consonants.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how about new research that supports a more effective way to teach decoding.
