Workshop Details

Why should I teach spelling? Is spelling important? We know that lots of smart people are poor spellers, so why bother? How can I teach spelling if I’m a poor speller myself? 

This Module will answer these questions... and more! 

Learning outcomes:

  • how you can apply the Te Whare Tapa Whā model to teaching spelling 
  • the basics on English language structure
