When readers struggle, there are three P’s to intervention success!
On Monday, November 20th, the Reading Council of Greater Winnipeg provided an after school session featuring Monica Wiebe, Certified Reading Clinician. Monica currently provides service to the Winnipeg School Division’s Diagnostic Learning Center, and brought cutting edge theory, research and practice to those in who attended the session from 4:30-6:30 in the library at Stevenson-Britannia School.
As the session title promised, topics such as phonemic awareness, phonics and the importance of repeated practice were explored in depth. How the brain interprets reading, which areas are activated and how to support areas of strength were topics also covered. Participants explored their own understanding of the three P’s and how to translate this understanding into the classroom.
Those fortunate enough to attended were provided with a link to Monica’s own stash of incredibly valuable resources for use in the classroom, during assessment, or when planning intervention. The evening was well worth fighting the blustery weather to attend!
