Engage with key tools and techniques used to build powerful morphological and phonics knowledge
Our students must learn prefixes and suffixes as well as letter-sound correspondences. How exactly do you fit this into the day? Is it possible to teach both in the same lesson?
Well, phonics and morphology have a very tight relationship - theirs is a love story of interdependence. When students over-rely on sounding out and don’t think about the morphemes in a word, they can be left with justifiable confusion about the spelling of some words.
Spelling errors like iz (is), pax (packs) or akshun (action) can be cleared up by not only studying a wider range of letter-sound correspondences but also by learning about the building blocks of words, as the morphology of a word influences which letters are used to spell it.
If this is something you’ve been wanting to explore, then this workshop is a great place to start!

Are you interested in seeing how teachers implement word study in their classrooms?
Join our second wordtorque online conference and see how Word Inquiry educators develop their students’ orthographic understanding, knowledge and skills.
You’ll get to hear from more than 30 teachers and tutors around the world as they talk you through the practical application of Word Inquiry.
The sessions have once again been organised to show investigations you can undertake, as well as direct explicit practice to consolidate student learning.
You will have the opportunity to post questions which presenters will respond to and each session has a downloadable teacher resource you can use with your students.
