Please join us for our first outreach events of the year! TPTE’s literacy education team are offering a free virtual literacy series, addressing assessment, phonological awareness, word recognition and encoding. These sessions are open to educators, parents, and policymakers.

The series runs on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm – 7:30pm, starting January 12 and ending January 26th.

Sessions include:

Session One (Jan 12) - hosted by Zoi Traga-Philippakos, assistant professor of literacy education. This session is for educators and will discuss assessment purposes, and the function of response to intervention.

Session Two (Jan 19) - hosted by Jennifer Jordan and Nora Vines, clinical associate professors of elementary and literacy education. This session is for educators, and will discuss the science of reading: from decoding to encoding.

Session Three (Jan 26) - hosted by Jennifer Jordan and Nora Vines, clinical associate professors of elementary and literacy education. This session is for educators and parents, and will cover developmental word study and tools to promote PA.

We look forward to seeing you there!

This was a good introduction to the basics of reading intervention and instruction. As someone who works in RTI for Knox County Schools it wasn't geared towards me as a learner, but I look forward to upcoming sessions.
