Evidence Based Literacy Instruction (EBLI) is a research-based program designed to teach students how to read fluently, become a better writer, and spell correctly. Spelling patterns are taught in the context of writing and misspelled words are corrected immediately. Correct writing conventions are modeled and practiced. Students will be exposed to a variety of engaging texts and will work towards identifying the main idea, writing concise summaries, and participating in literature circles. This course is divided into 2 parts. The first half is made up of 30 intensive units to train students in EBLI, and the second half consists of students implementing what they’ve learned. Students will track their weekly progress, participate in independent and group center readings and activities, and will monitor their reading fluency, comprehension, and growth. Students will be throughout the semester for their personal growth in reading speed, fluency, spelling, and writing.
