SKIll - Supporting Knowledge in Language and Literacy 2nd Edition
By Drs. Sandi and Ron Gillam
Dynamic Resources is proud to offer the SKILL program which teaches children basic story grammar elements such as character, setting, plan, action, etc., and then uses story modeling, story retelling and story generation to help children practice foundational literacy skills. High quality children’s literature is also incorporated into the lessons and used to teach vocabulary and comprehension.
The SKILL program was supported by a 1.5 million dollar development grant through the Institute of Educational Sciences, and has been implemented in a variety of educational settings across the country. The program can be used in a one-on-one instruction setting, in small groups or with an entire classroom. Research on the effectiveness of the SKILL program has demonstrated significant improvement in comprehension, recalling text details, story retelling, vocabulary and listening comprehension. These are all skills that lead to literacy success.
The SKILL manual and materials are being used by speech language pathologists, special education teachers, and classroom educators all across the United States and Canada. Great care was taken to develop materials that were not only instructionally sound and effective, but also compact and inexpensive.
