All too soon students are introduced to textbooks filled with longer, multisyllabic words. Even with effective basic phonics instruction, readers are often unable to handle both the increased quantity of text and its complexity. An understanding of morphology, or the meaning parts that comprise words, is valuable for the development of vocabulary and word attack skills. In this interactive, hands-on workshop, Van Cleave engages participants in a brief overview of the research, an introduction to morphemic awareness, and then a study of advanced word decoding strategies. Participants practice with each concept and learn tools useful for helping students understand, decode, and spell unfamiliar words.
