This symposium brings together four experts in spelling. Together, they bring a range of experiences including classroom instruction and tutoring across ages and abilities, administration, teacher education, and research. The presenters have planned their workshops as an integrated series of sessions that build on their backgrounds and strengths. Both Saturdays will involve a mix of practical and conceptual topics: participants will engage in orthographic investigations that can be used in classrooms and tutoring sessions across the grades, complemented by presentations that unpack the theory behind those practices.

Both Saturdays, October 1 and October 8, 2022 ($250.00)
