Language Arts St Robert’s Newtown


We hope you will have a wonderful time and learn a lot about continuing to teach high quality literacy lessons after phonemic awareness and phonics are all taken care of.

By the end of the course you will have:

  • a greater understanding of how we learn
  • a clear picture of the Simple View of Reading
  • a clear picture of the Simple View of Writing
  • a working understanding of structured literacy
  • tools to teach morphology
  • tools to teach parts of speech
  • tools to teach fluent, high quality writing


We have a dedicated Facebook page called Language Arts Community of Practice for all attendees. Join us here:
