Effective Literacy Intervention - Session 2 - Morphology and Etymology
The English language isn’t weird or crazy, simply misunderstood. Exploring words through morphology and etymology is the key to making sense of our language. In this webinar we will briefly explore the history of the language and then focus on how we can use this knowledge in our instruction. Participants will consider what effective morphology instruction looks like and the contribution it makes to vocabulary and spellings.
