Teaching Spelling Using a Structured Literacy Approach

September 23, 2020

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, sponsored by Pivot Learning subsidiary Consortium on Reaching Excellence in Education (CORE), 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.

  • Why so much information?
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
