This will be an interactive workshop, all participants are expected to have their cameras on.
Upon completion of the course, participants are able to:
Grasp the background knowledge and understand the research base supporting the why and how of Fundations instruction.

Understand the principles of instruction: explicit, sequential, and cumulative instruction that engages multiple learning modalities with multisensory instruction, repetition, and immediate, specific feedback.

Build a learning-focused classroom by maximizing instructional time, learning lesson activities, using questioning to guide student learning and mastery, and encouraging craftsmanship for optimum outcomes.
