Phonology and morphology are inextricably linked: the sounds and symbols we use in our language directly relate to word meaning. However, traditional reading instruction separates phonology and morphology. We expect students to learn to read and spell words of increasing complexity before we introduce them to word origin and the meaning of spelling patterns.
When we shift the paradigm and teach phonology and morphology simultaneously, magic happens! Students learn to recognize patterns that unlock word meaning. They discover that our language makes sense, and they develop a rich vocabulary and successful spelling habits.
Join us for a lively webinar discussing phonology and morphology -- two “best friends” that should always stick together. We will help you discover the meaning behind what you are teaching, and we will explain how to incorporate concepts from both Structured Word Inquiry and Orton-Gillingham into instruction. You will learn practical techniques that can be scaffolded for students of all ages.
