Teaching Word Solving Strategies - A Forgotten Skill?
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

While strategies for comprehension are the primary focus of reading instruction, the ability to recognize words by sight and how to solve unfamiliar words is also necessary. So you know your students would benefit from learning these specific skills, but you're not sure how to teach these strategies. This session will show you how to identify students who need this specific instruction and how to actively engage them in word work lessons. The areas that will be addressed include: how sounds in the English language are represented by various letter combinations; how to break words into parts; and how to effectively use context to solve unfamiliar words – ALL WITHOUT WORKSHEETS! As an added bonus, many of these skills are related to helping students become better spellers too. Optional $10.00 fee for a CD with printable materials.
