Fox Reading Conference: Focus on Spelling

Dr. Marcia Henry continues from her earlier lecture building from the history and diving into vocabulary research. Giving examples of student work and root word concepts that make language hard, Dr. Henry gets back to basics by exaimining the Anglo-Saxon, Latin and Greek foundational root words and the prefixes and suffixes established in our vocabulary and how we build words together with meaning.

Dr. Carreker guides teachers through common spelling errors and how recognizing the reasoning behind these errors can help guide corrective instruction. Dr. Carreker gives common examples of mixed up phonemics.

Dr. Marcia Henry takes a communication trip reaching from the cave paintings of South Africa, impact of trade routes, Chinese, Greek, Old English, and how the history of language built the structure of English we use today.
