Orton-Gillingham: Advanced Morphology
|Date||Monday, October 23rd, 2017|
|Time||8:30am to 3:30pm|
|Location||Stern Center for Language and Learning|
183 Talcott Road
|Prerequisites||Previous Orton-Gillingham training|
|Course Description||The English language is a morphophonological language. Therefore, teachers need to teach both phonics and morphology to enable struggling readers and writers to unlock literacy. An 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 Tier III words? This one-day workshop will teach morphology from basic prefixes and suffixes to Latin grid endings and Greek combining forms. Participants 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 and grammar. Participants will receive 6.5 continuing education hours. This workshop counts toward Orton-Gillingham Certified training requirements. Come ready to dissect and play with words!
