 Seeing Stars Course Objectives

 
This course explores the sensory-cognitive processes basic to phonological and orthographic processing, decoding, reading in context, and spelling.

Class members will learn the role of symbol imagery in:

1) automaticity in phonemic awareness,

2) acquisition of sight words,

3) acquisition of accurate spelling rather than phonetic spelling, and

4) development of fluency in contextual reading.

The class will learn to develop symbol imagery for students of all ages.  Study and supervised practice allow class members to learn how to "respond to the response" to develop sensory-cognitive functions, and integrate the steps into any curriculum, phonics program, reading program, or language arts program. Information and techniques are gained through discussion, demonstration, video, reading, and supervised practice.
