Literacy Symposium on Spelling Instruction

Join myself, Dr Jennifer O'Sullivan, Deirdre O'Toole and Dr Treasa Bowe on Saturday September 2nd for the next Science of Reading Literacy Symposium. This time, we focus on spelling instruction!

Spellings: taught or caught?

Children's spelling development, and the instruction that supports it, from Junior Infants to 6th class, will be addressed in the symposium. Join us as we examine the research surrounding spelling development and explore how to employ evidence-based spelling instruction in your classroom.

Across the webinar we will explore:

- Spellings and the Primary Language Curriculum

- Stages of Spelling Development

- Phonics

- Invented spelling

- Spelling rules

- Morphology and Etymology for spelling

- Spelling analysis and assessment

- Dos and don'ts of effective spelling instruction
