Presented by: Dr. Louisa Moats
Spelling is a key component of reading instruction. Yet, in a time of spell check and LOL, the importance of spelling is often short changed. Learning to spell is essentially a language learning process. We do not remember words simply as strings of letters. Teaching spelling involves teaching about language — its phonemes, graphemes, syllable structures, morphemes, and syntactic structures — and showing students why words are spelled the way they are.
During this hour long webinar, Dr. Louisa Moats discusses:
- The latest research about how children learn to spell
- How spelling supports reading and writing
- How spelling can be used as a diagnostic tool
- A comprehensive approach to teaching spelling that complements reading instruction
Watch this on-demand webinar to learn how spelling can be taught so that it helps all students, even those with word reading difficulties, become strong readers, writers and thinkers.
