3.9 The Purpose & Goals of Decodable Text
In previous episodes, we’ve discussed how decodable texts can support social-emotional learning for our students and how they have a specific purpose within our lessons. Yet, we continue to hear questions and conversations surrounding the use of decodable text for early readers.
Join us for a discussion of the purpose of decodable texts, the stages of use, and how we use them to move towards a transfer of knowledge in reading and spelling.
Listen in as we dig into the purpose and goals of decodable text.
