Looking for a way to help students of all ability levels improve their vocabulary and word attack skills?

Even with effective basic phonics instruction, readers who are introduced to textbooks filled with longer, multisyllabic words are often unable to handle both the increased quantity of text and its complexity. An understanding of morphology, or the meaning parts that comprise words, is valuable for the development of vocabulary and word attack skills.

In this interactive, hands-on workshop, Van Cleave engages participants in a brief overview of the origins of our language and characteristics of the major languages of influence, an introduction to morphological awareness, and then (as time permits) a study of advanced word decoding strategies. Participants practice with each concept and learn tools useful for helping students understand and decode unfamiliar words.

William Van Cleave is an internationally recognized speaker who has presented on effective teaching practices since 1995.  His materials are utilized by public and private school systems across the United States, including The Lexington School.
