Orton-Gillingham: Advanced Morphology

DateMonday, October 23rd, 2017
Time 8:30am to 3:30pm
Course Number1071
LocationStern Center for Language and Learning
183 Talcott Road
Suite 101
United States
PrerequisitesPrevious Orton-Gillingham training
Course DescriptionThe 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! Areas to be covered:
  • How to teach base words, suffixes, prefixes, Latin roots, and Greek combining forms
  • Lesson progression for -ion
  • Latin grid endings
  • How to incorporate vocabulary and grammar instruction
  • What does this look like in an Orton-Gillingham lesson?
  • Multisensory activities to add to your lessons
Unable to attend in person? You can participate in this workshop as a webinar! Tiers: 1, 2, and 3 This workshop is available for a discounted price of $200 instead of $225 when you register for this workshop and 1 or more of the following workshops:
