Professional Learning Opportunities

When teachers invest in growing their knowledge, students benefit too. Our goal in offering these classes is to support teachers as they embark on their journeys into the world of teaching morphology and language. These live virtual workshops will support your implementation of Morpheme Magic (grades 4-12) and Morphemes for Little Ones (grades K-3). Teachers will strengthen instructional practices as they acknowledge students’ needs and apply their learning to planning and teaching.

Workshops are designed to delve into the language components most important for your grade and student needs:

Morpheme Magic and your classes have made me realize I’m not scared of prefixes, suffixes, base word meanings like I thought I was. Your modeling has really helped me. I have really enjoyed learning what I didn’t know I needed to know. I am currently supporting some middle school teachers with their instruction outside of my early learning coach role and your classes have made my instruction stronger so THANK YOU!

Morpheme Magic Lessons: Advanced Word Study through Syllables and Morphemes

Learn more about morphological awareness and advanced word study, how to use the Morpheme Magic Lessons, and how to include morphology in your teaching throughout the day!

Three One-Hour Live Virtual Sessions: $75.00  Limit 50 individuals. Your registration link will be unique for one individual. These sessions are not recorded.

Session One: Learn how the language brain becomes a reading brain, how to determine your students’ word recognition phase, and what syllable instruction and morphological awareness is all about. Learn how to introduce morphology to your students. Begin to look into the Morpheme Magic lessons.

Session Two: Experience a Morpheme Magic Lesson to answer your questions about how to implement the lesson steps. Discuss the Morpheme Lexicon and Morpheme Wall.  Bring your questions about Morpheme Magic for a lively Q&A.

Session Three:  Gain access to several morphology activities that will enhance your instruction. Explore ways to use the Morpheme Wall Cards to teach, review, and explore morphemes and words.

 The Advanced Word Study Boot Camp allows teachers to take the class in one professional development day rather than three 1-hour sessions. The same content will be addressed with additional break-out discussion sessions, hands-on activities, with one hour lunch and additional breaks. Sign up with a group of colleagues or join the fun and learn about teaching morphological awareness with new colleagues.
