If you attended the Florida Literacy Conference this past May, you’ll probably recognize the name Betsy Stoutmorrill.
During Conference, Dr. Stoutmorrill presented a very popular session entitled “Reading: Science of the Brain Meets Art of the Mind.” The session highlighted how learning to read requires the (science) brain’s capacity to decode and link symbols to sounds and the (art) mind’s facility to comprehend the meaning of print.
In just over 3 weeks, on Sept. 22, Dr. Stoutmorrill will virtually present a training on identifying and solving reading error patterns. She will provide tutors and teachers with a system for identifying and analyzing oral reading/decoding errors students make.
Tutors and teachers can effectively address common error patterns through a process of listening, marking and discussing errors made by students who read a brief 100-150 word passage.
Participants will receive:
1) a list of the 10 most common reading errors
2) sample passages that can be utilized as a guide for selecting appropriate material from a wide range of reading resources
