Lyn Stone from Lifelong Literacy: Workshop in March 2020

Categories: News

Lyn Stone will be running a workshop on high impact literacy teaching strategies at SPELD NSW on 20 March 2020.

The theme is “The pen is mightier than the sword” – and is the idea that like any high-precision tool, literacy needs to be taught explicitly and practised well.

Drawing from her three flagship programs, Spelling for Life, Language for Life and Reading for Life, the day will consist of tried and true strategies to help teachers deliver even higher quality literacy instruction in their classrooms right away.

A full day, practical, hands-on seminar for teachers on how to get the most out of writing lessons.

Together we will explore:

  • pen grip
  • posture
  • letter formation
  • writing fluency
  • grammar, including parts of speech and morphemes
  • sight words, including the myths and facts surrounding them
  • cutting edge writing resources
  • dyslexia and dysgraphia and when to explore technology

Includes: Printed handouts, digital downloads, discounted Spelling for Life, Language for Life and Reading for Life paperbacks (optional and subject to pre-order)

Suitable for: Teachers, teacher aides, speech pathologists, educational psychologists, student teachers, homeschooling parents.
