Grade: Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 2

This institute will introduce you to TCRWP’s Units of Study in K-2 phonics. Co-authors will bring you behind the scenes to understand the decisions that informed the curriculum. You’ll see the curriculum’s grounding in research on how kids develop. Each phonics unit has a storyline—in one, kids solve the mystery of the silent e; in another, they learn that Super Readers rely on word part power to tackle hard words. The second grade curriculum places special emphasis on vocabulary, and you’ll learn the logic that informs that work.


The Phonics Institute is designed for grades K-2 educators, classroom teachers, school administrators, and curriculum specialists who are committed to turning classrooms into richly literate reading and writing workshops.
