Spelling for Life is a highly acclaimed, internationally recognised teaching and learning program, suitable for teachers of middle primary children. Those in special education, speech pathology, homeschooling and educational psychology are often keen participants too.

This face to face course is intended to deliver 5.5 hours of high quality professional development on the structure of the English writing system, going from single letters to morphemes in a sequence of explicit lessons.

Participants will:

  • receive a re-useable book of worksheets for direct classroom application
  • receive a printed manual
  • receive a suggested spelling and handwriting scope and sequence from F-6
  • receive a certificate of completion for 5.5 hours of PD

Course content:

3 modules containing information on:

  • Orthographic mapping
  • Extended code instruction
  • English spelling rules and conventions
  • Etymology
  • Morphology
  • High impact spelling practice that goes beyond weekly lists and tests

A couple of things to note:

Due to this being a one-day event, topics are carefully chosen with time constraints in mind. This is not a carbon copy of the online course, which, due to its self-paced nature, contains more topics and information. Both are good to do.

This event will not be recorded.
