Course content

  • Words form the bedrock of speaking, listening, reading and writing. This curse pays attention to the ways in which we can develop word knowledge for reading and writing in the context of rich language experiences. Delegates will explore the best ways to teach vocabulary for reading and for writing, and the most effective approaches to teaching spelling. This interactive course will include practical workshops demonstrating games and strategies with a clear rationale. Areas of focus:
  • What research tells us about the acquisition of vocabulary and spelling
  • Language-rich experience - not words in isolation
  • Why a blended approach to vocabulary instruction is needed
  • teaching individual words
  • morphology
  • etymology
  • Building word consciousness
  • Spelling: the skills underpinning good spelling
  • Best strategies to develop spelling competence
