Oct 25, 2018 10:00am ‐ Oct 25, 2018 11:00am

Standard: $20.00


The number of English learners attending public schools has increased. These students must achieve high levels of English vocabulary. Morphological awareness across languages has been described as an evidence-based, word-learning strategy for English learners. Participants learn an explicit manner for teaching morphological awareness to English learners. A cross-linguistic routine is modeled and practiced. Strategies for developing multiple opportunities for students to practice, master, and apply these concepts are also discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • English Language Learner: Examine the relationship between acquisition of second language and instructional implication for students with language learning disabilities/dyslexia.
  • 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.
  • READING, SKILLS, & STRATEGIES: Examine the role of vocabulary acquisition and ability in listening and reading comprehension, and in speaking and writing.
  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine ways to integrate and review phonics, spelling and vocabulary through daily activities in the classroom.
