  • 7th Apr 17: Spelling it Out in Secondary Contexts

    Misty Adoniou: Spelling it Out in Secondary Contexts

    Particularly for secondary teachers, this session will focus on the study of words, their origins and building vocabulary to support students to access the content of different discipline areas.

  • 22nd Apr 17: Spelling It Out: How Words Work & How to Teach Them

    ALEA SYDNEY WEST

    PRESENTER: Dr Misty Adoniou

    There are two myths about spelling that prevail in the wider community. Firstly, spelling is an innate skill – you are either good at it, or you are not - and secondly, that spelling is either an aural or visual skill. The first myth means we spend more time testing spelling than teaching it. The second myth results in teaching strategies which are predominantly focused on sounding out or learning words ‘off by heart’.

    In this workshop we will look closely at the linguistics of words, and understand the ways in which etymology (word origins), morphology (meaning components), phonology (sounds) and orthography (spelling conventions) provide strong, multiple pathways into learning words. When spelling is conceived of as word study in this way, we support our learners to understand the ways in which words are formed in English, and simultaneously build their vocabulary. We also dispel the perception that English spelling is chaotic and random, and instead uncover the systems behind English spelling.

    WE APOLOGISE BUT THIS COURSE IS NOW FULL. WE CAN NO LONGER TAKE FURTHER REGISTRATIONS.

The teachers and Associate Professor Lisa Kervin have used Design Experiments to try out innovative teaching pedagogies for multimodal text creation, which they will share with us in their workshop.
