Teaching Morphology and Phonology Awareness to Improve Basic Skills

 

 

February 18, 2021

Presenters: KELLI SANDMAN-HURLEY, Ed.ED and TRACY BLOCK-ZARETSKY

Traditional phonics programs look at decoding and encoding words primarily through pronunciation and syllables. In this webinar we will show how looking at how phonology works in the context of morphology first can help students make sense of words for decoding and encoding. We will walk through how to conduct word study with a student looking through morphology and then phonology. We will show how studying any given word family allows for building better understanding of how the English language is truly structured.

IMPROVING SPELLING
TO MAKE WRITING AND READING GAINS

 

 

January 28, 2021

Presenters: KELLI SANDMAN-HURLEY, Ed.ED and TRACY BLOCK-ZARETSKY

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.
