Description

The IMSE Morphology Plus 30-hour course is a hands-on, interactive, and personalized class that provides a complete understanding of morphology, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension and how to apply it in the classroom. After participating in this accredited Structured Literacy course, teachers will have an understanding of the structure and foundation of the English language.  Educators will have an understanding of where to begin instruction with students with dyslexia as well as students in all three tiers of RTI.  Teachers will be able to evaluate and teach students in morphology, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Teachers will also have access to the asynchronous IMSE Writing and Grammar course to help assess and teach writing and grammar to students. Teachers will also have access to an asynchronous video that demonstrates instructional strategies for teaching older students to encode (spell) and decode (read) phonetic words, how to spell irregular words, and a syllable division method. This course is appropriate for students who have word recognition and spelling skills but struggle with comprehension. Upon completion of this course, teachers are eligible to purchase 2 graduate credits.

THE COURSE IS FOR:
General and special education teachers grades 3-5 as well as teachers whose students can read and spell but continue to struggle with language comprehension.
