The English language is a morphophonological language. Therefore, teachers need to teach both phonology and morphology to enable struggling readers to unlock literacy. Understanding of morphology improves word identification, reading comprehension, spelling, and written expression. How can we teach morphology and challenge advanced students to decode and comprehend Tier II and III words? This one day workshop will cover beginning through advanced morphology from basic prefixes and suffixes to Latin grid endings and Greek combining forms. Evidenced-based strategies for teaching both morphology and vocabulary will be shared. Attendees will leave with a greater understanding of free and bound morphemes, Anglo-Saxon, Latin, and Greek derivations, and how to explicitly teach morphological awareness while also teaching vocabulary. Come ready to dissect and play with words.

The Stern Center means a lot to me. It is because of the work they do that I am a reader today. Before going to the Stern Center, I struggled with reading and my mind was focused on the fact that I couldn't do it- that it was impossible. Being tutored at the Stern Center not only improved my reading skills tremendously but it also changed that mindset. With the help of my incredible tutor, I was able to build confidence in my learning.
