     What are the content (what is taught) and principles of instruction (how it is taught) that make Structured Literacy an effective instructional approach for teaching reading and other written language skills?
      Structured Literacy approaches teaching language-related academic skills emphasize core content: the structure and use of phonology; phonics, including syllable instruction; morphology and etymology; syntax; text reading fluency; vocabulary; semantics; and written expression, including handwriting. In addition, Structured Literacy is based on core instructional principles: explicit, direct; sequential, systematic, and cumulative; diagnostic; and simultaneous multisensory presentation. The combination of this core content and these principles of instruction support students’ ability to learn, recall, and apply information.
