Student’s spelling errors demonstrate what they know and need to know about sounds and letter patterns. 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) phonological awareness;
2) reliable spelling patterns and rules; and
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.
