WRS Group Mastery Practicum

September 1, 2022 - December 31, 2023

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Individuals who successfully meet all requirements of this practicum are able to:

  • Identify the characteristics of dyslexia and related language-based learning disabilities.
  • Use assessments to identify students with word-level deficits who are appropriate for an intensive intervention in a small, homogeneous group setting.
  • Diagnostically plan and deliver group lessons, while addressing and understanding individual student weaknesses that impact the ability to learn to read and write.
  • Plan and conduct group lessons that address the individual needs within the group, and foster a positive instructional climate with clearly established rules and routines.
  • Guide students to correct errors through questioning and use of their notebooks.
  • Appropriately pace a group of students through the curriculum, developing mastery of material taught, designing group lessons that focus on accuracy, automaticity, and fluency of word and text reading.
  • Effectively utilize multisensory structured language (MSL) instructional techniques, and demonstrate explicit teaching, modeling, guided practice, appropriate feedback, and consistent review in lessons in the group setting.
  • Deepen skills developed in the WRS Level I Certification.

Participants who have successfully completed this course are specialized in implementing WRS in a small-group setting, but are not considered WRS Level II Certified unless they have completed all four advanced courses.
