The Courses

TEACHERS’ INTERMEDIATE COURSE

The fun, drama, music, and stories continue at the Wired for Reading Intermediate course!

Now that you and your students have a strong foundation of phonological awareness and are able to decode single syllable words, it is time to focus on multi-syllable word analysis. We will review the two strategies already learned for breaking apart words by sound and meaning, and learn a new strategy using letters. We will also review and explore concepts from Introductory more deeply and share implementation stories.

Optional: One credit through Seattle University Professional Development program EPDLA 900 for $40 a credit or 10 Washington State clock hours at $2 per clock hour. Credits earned may apply towards Washington State teacher certification and for advancement on the salary scale.

The Intermediate Course is organized and presented in two parts:

DEEP, TARGETED REVIEW

  • Exploration and discussion of the implementation of the Introductory Course material
  • Celebrating implementation successes and problem solving implementation challenges
  • Reviewing teacher-requested concepts from the Introductory Course

COMBINED ANGLO SAXON

  • Learn the meaning and spelling of the most common Anglo Saxon based prefixes and suffixes using Adapted American sign to aid transfer and provide cues when learning
  • Learn how Anglo Saxon based prefixes, roots and suffixes combine to form multi-syllable words
  • Use knowledge of syllable types to “yank” words into chunks, making it easier to understand and remember when to double a consonant or drop a silent e, etc.
  • Review and deepen understanding of how to strip off prefixes and suffixes to reveal the root or base word and break words into more manageable chunks for reading, spelling, and vocabulary acquisition.
  • Create a suffix key to track the meaning and spelling of the most common Anglo Saxon based suffixes.
  • Enjoy memory-friendly and entertaining phonics stories that use music, drama, and humor to clarify spelling patterns such as –es vs. –s, y to i, -ed or t/d, -le vs. –el.
  • Learn how to look for meaning and word origin clues to make spelling choices and clarify common multi-syllable spelling confusions
