The English language is rich with words. The Oxford Dictionary has over 500,000 entries and is ever growing. How then, can we expect to teach students all the words they will encounter throughout the school career? Join Alexander Laue for this timesaving, to the point session as we explore morphology and how we can teach students to break apart words into meaningful pieces. These practices give students strategies to solve words for their meaning, using all their knowledge of affixes, Latin bases and Greek combining forms. Get ready to revolutionize your teaching approach and enhance students' language skills through the power of morphology! Alexander’s expertise as a literacy instructional coach will provide you with the tools and resources you need to integrate morphology instruction into the curriculum to enhance students' vocabulary acquisition, reading comprehension, spelling, and overall literacy skills. 

Key Takeaways: 

  1. Explore the concept of morphology instruction and familiarize yourself with the key vocabulary associated with it. 
  2. Gain insights into the history of the English language and its largest linguistic influences (Anglo-Saxon, Latin, and Greek). 
  3. Examine sample assessments for morphology instruction and discuss how the data can be used to inform where to start teaching word study.  
  4. Discover research-based techniques for increasing students’ morphological knowledge. 


Participants will have communication and collaboration and opportunities throughout the training to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning.
