Live, Online session - 

In this session, Peter Bowers draws on topics in two model lessons with junior high students. Participants will learn how to use lessons from the book to fuel on-going teacher and student learning about how to investigate the spelling-meaning connections in word families to support vocabulary learning. Participants will learn how to work with the matrix and word sum and to start using them for words of their own choosing.


NRLC will be offering two follow-up sessions in the 2022-23 program year.  To register for these offerings, please go to: https://nrlc.net/program/8793
