Putting Word Study Into Practice

October 20, 2022

Word study is a developmental approach to teaching word patterns, one that integrates phonics, spelling, and vocabulary instruction. In this ILA Intensive, hosted by Donald R. Bear, presenters will share and model word study activities across stages, hands-on ideas for student-centered learning, and instructional routines that yield results.

The program includes a keynote from Elfrieda H. Hiebert and features Kevin Flanigan, Tisha Hayes, Lori Helman, and Hiawatha Smith.
