Early bird available until 16 April


Lack of competency in spelling can be an obstacle to the success and enjoyment in writing for many students. If spelling is a challenge, it slows down the writing process and interferes with the flow of ideas. It can also result in students making limited vocabulary choices.  

Explicitly teaching students phonics, morphology and spelling conventions demystifies the alphabetical code and equips them with the tools they need to spell.  It also develops word consciousness and builds a love of vocabulary.


The course includes:

  • two online 90-minute workshops (two different times available).


Teachers will:

  • develop subject knowledge about phonics, morphology and spelling conventions
  • unpack the progression of skills  (phonics, spelling conventions and morphology)
  • learn high-impact strategies and activities to teach word and sub-word level skills.
