Micro-Credential #3: Decode and Encode Through Sound Boxes

Sound boxes can be a powerful tool for teaching the English code and sound blending. This micro-credential course offers an overview of how sound boxes can help you isolate and introduce “graphemes,” or symbolic representations of sounds. You will examine the use of sound boxes as an instructional practice and formulate a critique that argues for the pros and cons of this approach in phonics instruction. Upon successful completion of this course, you will earn a digital badge certifying your skill in using sound boxes to help students understand the relationship between sounds and words.

This course is offered in partnership with K-12 Connect. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy policy.
