  • 3rd Nov 16: 'Guiding Thinking for Effective Spelling'

    'Guiding Thinking for Effective Spelling' web conference

    PRESENTER: Christine Topfer

    During this web conference, Christine Topfer will outline ways to explicitly teach the key spelling strategies: sound, visual, meaning, connecting and checking. Teachers from Prep to Year 8 will learn how spelling can be presented as an engaging inquiry process which needs to be supported by a consistent approach across the whole school. Chris believes that developing students’ thinking about how they attempt to record unknown words or approach learning new words can improve their spelling accuracy and awareness. Bringing students’ attention to five key strategies develops each student’s disposition for solving words when writing, teaching them HOW to spell, not just WHAT to spell.
