What is it? How to teach it?
CATT-OG invites you to join Dr. Deborah Glaser on Saturday January 29, 2022 at 9:00am - 11am (PST) for a two hour workshop that adds a new level to any OG/MSL approach by teaching in three dimensions.
Morphology is all the buzz in reading circles, but many teachers are still unsure about what morphology is, why it is important, and how to teach it. Morphological Awareness is the new awareness and it is important that teachers understand what it is, and how to begin creating awareness of morphology from early on. Word recognition is dependent upon phonological, orthographic, and morphological language structures - Do you include all three in your instruction? This session will present compelling research about morphology and its relationship to the development of multiple literacy skills. Through active participation with words during the session, teachers will discover ways to build their own knowledge about morphology. They will learn teaching processes designed to engage students in creative exploration of words, create curiosity about words, their meanings, and their etymology too! Come be a word nerd with Dr. Deb Glaser!
