SWR 6 Week Professional Development Course – Wk.1 -Mon. – Carrie Holland

June 3 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT


Instructor: Carrie Holland
To Register: answerstoliteracy@gmail.com – for the entire 6 week course

Basic and Advanced online training in one professional development course! Learn how to use spelling as the foundation for teaching writing and reading. Spell to Write and Read (SWR) by Wanda Sanseri is an excellent curriculum for laying a solid foundation. Many good readers are poor spellers, but our students do both well. This phonics method adapts to all ages from preschool to adult.

The material is presented through a 6 week course which meets twice a week for a 2 hour session each time. With sufficient time, it helps students to unlearn what was incorrectly taught so they can successfully and confidently learn phonics correctly and efficiently. Taking the time to spread out what is being learned allows time to absorb the content and understand how to go forward with confidence.

Based on historically, solidly proven research and successful methods, you will learn to:
* Teach spelling, writing and reading using multi-sensory instruction that enables all learning styles to excel
* Present reliable phonics in a way that is 93-97% accurate, explain “sight words” and “exceptions”
* Teach students to THINK, not guess
* Evaluate spelling and reading progress
* Save time and money using non-consumable supplies over many years of instruction
