Program: SCI: General

Audience: Grades 4-12 Classroom, ELA, Literacy, and Special Education Teachers

Dates: 7/22/2024

OVERVIEW:

Upper elementary and middle school teachers often struggle with how to support students' decoding and spelling skills. In the intermediate grades, written words become longer and more complex, making reading, spelling, and understanding these words more challenging. Morphology, the study of the structure of words, is a powerful instructional tool teachers can use to help their students realize that written English does actually make sense! Through explicit teaching and exploration of the three main parts of multisyllabic words - prefixes, suffixes, and bases - students gradually come to understand the logical structures and meanings of English words. This morphological awareness helps students read, write, and comprehend words successfully.

This full-day workshop session will provide participants with a stronger understanding of morphology: what it is, and why it is important to teach. Participants will then learn how to incorporate the teaching of morphology into their classrooms, using techniques such as word sums, word matrices, and teacher resources (Morpheme Magic).

OUTCOMES:

-Define the terms morpheme and morphology.

- Describe the role the study of morphology plays in developing children's decoding skills, encoding skills, and vocabulary development.

- Explain instructional strategies for teaching morphology in the classroom.

68. Morphology Matters! (A LOT!) [REPEATS] - REGISTER BY 8.01.24

Program: SCI: General

Audience: Grades 4-12 Classroom, ELA, Literacy, and Special Education Teachers

Dates: 8/6/2024

OVERVIEW:

Upper elementary and middle school teachers often struggle with how to support students' decoding and spelling skills. In the intermediate grades, written words become longer and more complex, making reading, spelling, and understanding these words more challenging. Morphology, the study of the structure of words, is a powerful instructional tool teachers can use to help their students realize that written English does actually make sense! Through explicit teaching and exploration of the three main parts of multisyllabic words - prefixes, suffixes, and bases - students gradually come to understand the logical structures and meanings of English words. This morphological awareness helps students read, write, and comprehend words successfully.

This full-day workshop session will provide participants with a stronger understanding of morphology: what it is, and why it is important to teach. Participants will then learn how to incorporate the teaching of morphology into their classrooms, using techniques such as word sums, word matrices, and teacher resources (Morpheme Magic).

OUTCOMES:

-Define the terms morpheme and morphology.

- Describe the role the study of morphology plays in developing children's decoding skills, encoding skills, and vocabulary development.

- Explain instructional strategies for teaching morphology in the classroom.
