How can we help our ESOL learners improve their spelling?

Spelling can be straightforward for some students, but others struggle and need help with it. As teachers, we often feel unprepared to support our ESOL learners with spelling, and sometimes we are not even that confident with our own spelling!

However, unresolved spelling difficulties can affect learners’ confidence and even hinder their language learning experience as a whole.

This workshop will look at aspects of English spelling that can be tricky for students, the relationship between reading and spelling, as well as strategies used by good spellers. We will discuss how spelling works in English and whether or not it is regular. Finally, we will take a look at practical activities we can use in the classroom to help our students improve their spelling.

Preparing for the Workshop

Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.

At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you. 

Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.

You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum. 

The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world. 

After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries

Another fantastic session by Sophie. She takes you into the world of spelling with ease, explains carefully and in detail many of the aspects to consider when approaching the teaching of spelling. I loved the session and Sophie`s contagious enthusiasm for teaching. Thank you ever so much. I do recommend this workshop for its valuable inside and tips on hoe to teach spelling.
