RAVE-O Offers Strategic Instruction in
Fluency and Comprehension
RAVE-O (Retrieval, Automaticity, Vocabulary, Engagement - Orthography) is the first comprehensive research and evidence-based approach to building reading fluency struggling 2nd - 4th graders.
By the completion of the course, participants will be prepared to teach RAVE-O both in-person and online. The program goes beyond repeated reading to help students develop their automaticity in all aspects of word knowledge, integrating phonics, vocabulary, parts of speech, and morphology.
RAVE-O is the only known structured literacy approach for students with Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN) weaknesses, and now has a virtual version of the curriculum for remote instruction.
RAVE-O Virtual offers a curriculum that is designed for both LIVE LESSONS (via Google classroom) and ASYNCHRONOUS ACTIVITIES (via Seesaw). Live Lessons are scripted and easy to deliver, while the asynchronous or self-guided activities have recorded directions that facilitate independent work.
Participants: The RAVE-O course is designed for educators who support struggling readers and those with dyslexia including, reading specialists, classroom teachers, special educators, and speech and language pathologists.
Course Commitment and Credits: 12 hours (PDPs)
Self-Guided Coursework: Participants will initially complete 6 hours of self-guided coursework that offers an overview of the curriculum and important research-based insights on the development of fluency skills. All self-guided coursework should be completed prior to the live workshop.
Live Coursework: The live workshop is 6 hours, and offers guided practice in the delivery of instructional routines and curriculum assessment.
Wednesday, July 14th from 8:30 - 3:30pm.
Attendance at the live workshop is mandatory for certification in the RAVE-O program.
Course Materials: A course manual and sample program materials will be sent to enrolled participants.
