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 
  • how you can embed spelling strategies into your everyday teaching 
  • how to develop an interest in words 

Plus you will have access to some great spelling resources. 

Ako Aotearoa ALNACC PLD Courses


Each module consists of a four-week PLD course starting with a workshop, delivered face-to-face or by video conference.

This is followed by an online community of professional learning. Participants will have the opportunity to practise and reflect on the new learning and exchange experiences and ideas with each other and the facilitator.

Participants can collect evidence of participation and engagement in their PLD Portfolio or Kete.

They can receive a digital badge, or micro-credential, for participation in each of the three components and a ‘gold badge’ if all three badges are collected.
