In the recorded sessions of this learning opportunity, Peter Bowers introduces teachers and students to the central tools of SWI and then teaches an SWI lesson in a Jr. High Classroom based on vocabulary in text from subjects the class is already teaching. Following the student exemplar lessons, Peter draws on topics in two model lessons with junior high students and leads participants in 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. 

Participants are required to complete this On Demand Learning Opportunity prior to attending the February 8th session. Participants will receive a link to a downloadable PDF to the OnDemand Learning Guide in their registration confirmation email.
