10/19/2021 The Word Mapping Strategy

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM

The Word Mapping Strategy is a research-based strategy developed at the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning that is designed to help older students learn how to predict the meaning of unknown words.  This strategy helps students identify prefixes, suffixes, and roots and practice predicting the meaning of words using those parts. 

Instruction in this strategy works best when students have learned basic decoding skills (reading at 4th grade level or higher).  This strategy can be taught in different kinds of instructional settings including content area classes, Tier 2 and Tier 3 settings, and special education classes. 

The $16 fee will include the book needed for this session. Participants will, also, receive access to a Google Folder which includes electronic resources. This will be an in-person session. For questions, contact erica.price@ckec.org or laura.smith@ckec.org
