Magical Spelling® is a visual recall strategy that has been uncovered by studying people who naturally spell English well.
It is a way of teaching this natural strategy to children and adults who have been trying to spell phonetically.
It is easy to learn and, with practice, becomes easy to teach.
Caitlin Walker has been running pilots with pupils at two schools in The Wirral who, after learning the strategy themselves, have become tutors for other children in the schools. The sessions have been enjoyed immensely by the staff and pupils involved and are already showing positive results.
We're now offering this process to parents, teachers, teaching assistants and coaches and we’re encouraging rigorous research which will help us to evaluate its impact.
The course takes place over two days.
Who's it for?
Coaches, Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Parents
What will I gain?
Become a Certified Magical Spelling Tutor.
On Day 1 you will learn the basic process and get support as you practise Magical Spelling® with fellow participants. You will also learn the specific language that underpins Magical Spelling® so you can make it easy for learners to take it on and make full use of it.
Following this training day we will be encouraging you to practise with as many students as possible.
During Day 2 we will explore the patterns and problems that can come up with Magical Spelling® and devise strategies to overcome them. If you wish to become a Certified Magical Spelling® Tutor, you can also go through the assessment process during this session. (If you need further practise, additional assessment sessions @ £45 per person can be organised at a later date.)
