How can we expect correct spelling from students when English is so full of crazy exceptions? Or is it possible that the English spelling system actually makes perfect sense? In this session we will introduce Structured Word Inquiry and see how we can use it to find logic in spelling by teaching etymology, orthography, morphology and phonology. These all work together to prove that our spelling system makes sense. Leave with lesson ideas for incorporating these concepts with elementary aged students
