In August of 2020, I gave an eagle’s eye introduction to language and its connections to reading for the volunteer reading tutors at New Haven Reads. NHR has put video of the talk up on their YouTube channel (embedded below), making it my YouTube debut. You can view the slides online here. Or, you can download them here. The download is a zip file which you will need to unzip. You can then view the resulting html file in your web browser.
The talk is divided into these sections:
- Language and its Parts
- Its Relationship to Language
- Alphabetic Principle
- Phoneme Awareness
