Syntax: Somewhere Between Words and Text
Presenter: Nancy Eberhardt
Syntax plays a major role in determining word meaning, writing clearly, and understanding text. This session makes a case for sentence-level instruction and explores the role of syntax on vocabulary development, written composition, and reading comprehension. The goals of this session are for participants to increase their understanding of syntax and to acquire strategies to enhance instruction in this vital area of literacy development.
The Ohio Valley Branch of The International Dyslexia Association (formerly The Orton Dyslexia Society) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, scientific and educational organization dedicated to the study and treatment of the learning disability, dyslexia. This Branch was formed to increase public awareness of dyslexia in the Southern Ohio, Southeast Indiana, Kentucky, and West Virginia areas. We have been serving individuals with dyslexia, their families, and professionals in the field in this community for over 30 years. There are two other Branches of IDA in Ohio--Northern Ohio and Central Ohio. A group in the Dayton area can be contacted at this site: http://daytonread.wordpress.com.
