The Science of Effective Spelling Instruction
August 6, 2020 | 1:00 PM ET
Researchers have found that when reading (i.e., decoding) instruction is integrated with spelling (i.e., encoding) instruction, students see significant gains in both reading and spelling related tasks (Weiser & Mathes, 2011). In this webinar, you will learn what the science says about effective spelling instruction. Hint: it's not giving students a list of words to memorize.

Going Beyond the Weekly Spelling List: Reading Horizons Discovery® Spelling Supplement
August 13, 2020 | 12:00 PM ET
In this webinar, you will learn how to teach your students that there is more to spelling than memorization. Learn the principles and logic that underlie the Reading Horizons Discovery® Spelling Supplement. Using these principles, you can teach your students how to encode and prove that words are being spelled correctly. That way, when the spelling test is over and memory fades, your students still have a knowledge of the structures and patterns of the English language. Learn how teachers can be trained on this program virtually and how lessons can be altered for both virtual and in-person instruction.
Registration coming soon.
