All students can benefit from learning strategies for reading and spelling multisyllabic words.  Rapid word recognition plays an important role in reading fluency and comprehension. Learning syllable types helps students to decode longer words accurately and efficiently. Syllabication is a critical word analysis skill that helps students break unknown multisyllable words into syllables that can be pronounced. In this two-hour workshop, Alex Frelinghuysen, MA Ed, and Colleen McGlynn, MS Ed, will present techniques for the explicit teaching of syllable types and the rules of syllabication. 

For teachers of grades 3-12.
