Webinars Series - Erasing the Misery of Reading and Spelling Multi-syllabic Words

Do you have students who skip, guess at, or just give up when they encounter long, complex words in printed texts? Does their comprehension suffer when they are unable to read those words? There are some very functional, simple techniques you can teach students to use for reading and spelling multisyllabic words, allowing them to better comprehend what they read. 

In this four-part webinar we demonstrate explicit, scaffolded teaching of multi-syllabic word decoding with various multisensory techniques, including a manipulative that is easy to access or create for use with students of all ages and grades. This “Lose the Rules” approach teaches students to ask simple questions to break words down into individual syllables, helping them become fluent and efficient decoders of all syllable types. This approach is effective across all grade levels. We also teach participants a similar set of strategies for spelling multisyllabic words syllable by syllable. Additionally, participants will learn a scope and sequence in which to teach powerful, multisyllabic word decoding and spelling, and they will receive a list of words that are effective for teaching the scope and sequence in various content areas.
