      Just Words® Screening/Placement Workshop - Session C

      Just Words® Screening/Placement Workshop - Session C *This is a one (1) day event - Thursday, April 30, 2020   Audience: K-Grade 12: District/Agency Personnel, Literacy Specialists/Coordinators and representatives of other state/community agencies, and higher education   Presenter: Sally Scott, Literacy Specialist, Wilson Language Training, Pomfret Center    Description:  Student identification and proper student placement is critical to the success of a Just Words class. The Just Words® curriculum is designed for students and adults who have mild to moderate gaps in their decoding and spelling proficiency but do not require intensive intervention. It is recommended that the Test of Silent Word Reading Fluency-2 (TOSWRF) and the Word Identification and Spelling Test (WIST) are appropriate measures for screening and placing students in a Just Words class.  This half-day workshop, facilitated by a Wilson certified instructor, prepares educators to use these measures and provides background information and hands-on practice administering the tests. Participants will learn about delivery, scoring, and data gathering from the WIST and TOSWRF; and learn how to group students based on the above data and school-provided data. There is no registration fee for public school personnel attending this training. Non-public school personnel pay $75 to attend.   For content questions, please contact Vernée Butterfield, SERC, (860) 632-1485 ext. 336 or butterfield@ctserc.org. For registration questions, please contact Lauren Johns, SERC, (860) 632-1485, ext. 256 or johns@ctserc.org.
