Spelling: Teaching the Structure of Language

April 17, 2024 | 12:00 PM - America/Detroit

Webinar Overview 

Learning to spell is more difficult than learning to read because it requires complete and accurate word formation.  But spelling is often treated as an afterthought in curricular decisions with limited actual instructional time.  Additionally, teacher knowledge of language structure directly correlates to how much students learn related to the how and why of spelling.  Let’s consider together the English conventions of spelling and how to help children use them to their advantage as they write both in educational therapy and in the classroom.
