CATT-OG invites you to join Dr. Peter Bowers on Saturday November 7th, 2020 at 9:00am (PST) for a three hour workshop that dives deeper into Structured Word Inquiry - Spelling Out Loud. 

Note: Recorded version of the webinar will be available for 1 week after the event.

This course will go into careful detail about the topic. Participants will see how those that take on this practice are forced to address all the orthographic structures in words -- morphemes, graphemes and orthographic markers -- as well as any suffixing changes.  The 3-hour time for this session provides time to practice this process in real time but also to address key orthographic concepts like orthographic markers that are little understood outside of SWI, and to look at how this practice links to key learning theory such as cognitive load theory.  This course would be an excellent follow-up or set up to either of the other single-session courses.

I provided a basic description of this process in the Bowers and Kirby (2010) intervention study that introduce the term structured word inquiry.  Not only has my understanding of this process grown over time, but my emphasis on this practice has grown every year since.  You can see illustrations and descriptions of this process on my website http://www.wordworkskingston.com/WordWorks/Spelling-Out_Word_Sums.html.
