Webinar: Improving Spelling to Make Writing and Reading Gains
January 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
WEBINAR: IMPROVING SPELLING TO MAKE WRITING AND READING GAINS
Spelling is often left to memorization. A student may pass the weekly test, but then not be able to spell or even read those same words just days or weeks later. If students were taught the underlying structure of English spellings, they would be able to understand English words better to help improve decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling). In this webinar participants will get an overview of how English words do have logical spellings and how teaching spelling through morphology and phonology can help students with their literacy skills. Participants will be introduced to instructional strategies based on the STRUCTURED WORD INQUIRY approach to help teach spelling in a structured, explicit/logical, multisensory approach to assist all students in their classroom, small group, or individual tutoring lessons.
