Students’ spelling errors demonstrate what they know and need to know about sounds and letter patterns to develop accurate spelling. By addressing specific needs, students improve their accuracy and learn how to spell for a lifetime.
In Scientific Spelling, participants learn how to analyze spelling errors and plan instruction to target students’ specific needs. Instruction for participants will include 1) phonemic awareness, 2) reliable spelling patterns and rules, and/or 3) strategies for learning words with unexpected spelling. Participants also engage in collaborative activities that extend their learning and can be presented to their students.
