Katie Pace Miles, PhD, joins the READ Podcast to discuss the foundations of word level reading instruction. Dr. Miles explains orthographic mapping, a fundamental strategy for literacy development, in which readers map out letter patterns, sounds, spelling, and meaning to learn words. She discusses the essential building blocks for orthographic mapping, demonstrating to READers that children do not learn to read by memorizing whole words. Dr. Miles discusses her current work of training pre-service teachers to deliver high-quality interventions to struggling readers in New York City. This episode is timely for Dyslexia Awareness Month as Dr. Miles discusses essential instructional practices to support students with dyslexia that are effective for all emerging readers.
