Unlocking Unfamiliar Words: Syllabication Strategies for Success (3rd – 12th Grade)
3rd through 12th Grade special education, intervention, resource
Syllabication instruction teaches struggling readers strategies to decode multisyllable words quickly and accurately. Students learn to systematically break a multisyllabic word into small, manageable syllables, identify the vowel sounds within each syllable and read the word. Teachers learn the in-depth Brainspring Orton-Gillingham system for teaching structured, sequential, and cumulative syllabication lessons.
This workshop coupled with the Greek and Latin Roots workshop provides teachers of struggling middle and high school readers with powerful intervention tools to meet a variety of needs.
A Brainspring Instructor teaches this workshop live in real time via Zoom (access and use details are provided upon registration). This workshop allows for interaction with the Instructor and other participants in order to retain the hands-on learning approach.
Participants learn to teach: • A systematic process to read unfamiliar, multisyllable words • Phonetic syllable-reading practice • Three Syllable Patterns • Eight Syllable Types Upon completion, participants will: • Be prepared to teach structured syllabication to struggling readers in 3rd through 12th Grade
Note: While the content of this workshop is sufficient for some struggling readers, it is not a replacement for the complete intervention/remediation course content of Phonics First® or Structures for students with significant reading deficits, LD or dyslexia.
