    Structured Literacy (SL) prepares students to decode words in an explicit and systematic manner. The instruction is based on careful and continuous assessment in order to be individualized and meet a student’s needs. The learning is hands-on, engaging, and multimodal. The six elements to SL instruction are:
      • Phoneme Awareness
      • Sound-Symbol (phoneme – grapheme) Correspondences
      • Patterns and Conventions of Print (Orthography)
      • Morphology
      • Syntax
      • Semantics
