2017 Reading, Literacy & Learning Virtual Conference

T1 - Morphemic Awareness: From the Anglo Saxon Layer to the Latin and Greek Layer. It's Never to Early to Begin.

Nov 9, 2017 10:00am ‐ Nov 9, 2017 11:00am

Standard: $20.00


In this hands-on session, participants will learn how to transition their instruction from phonology and syllables to morphemes through morphemic awareness activities. Participants will learn how vital it is to prepare the brain for the challenge of decoding by phonemes and then syllables to decoding by morphemes. In order to prepare for this step, participants will learn hands on ways to support students in moving to the next level of decoding, while improving not only their decoding skills, but their vocabulary knowledge as well.

Learning Outcomes:

  • MORPHOLOGICAL INSTRUCTION: Analyze teaching higher level reading and vocabulary development through Morphological Awareness instruction.
  • MORPHOLOGICAL INSTRUCTION: Compare the role of morphological processing skills to the development of reading and language acquisition.
