20TRA257 Teaching Principal Cluster Information Evening

 

 

 

 

An information evening will take place on Thursday the 5th of March here in the Education Centre for Teaching Principals. The purpose of this information evening is to explore the idea of setting up clusters in Kerry where Teaching Principals would cluster together to create a post where someone would cover their relaese days throughout the year. This would allieviate the headache of having to find substitute teachers throughout the year. Linda Dennehy who is a Teaching Principal in Mallow will share her expertise on how she set up a successful cluster in Mallow. She was previously also part of a successful cluster in the Killarney area.

20TRA159 Helping the Struggling Speller

 

Title:   Helping the Struggling Speller

This talk will examine spelling as a skill and also as a developmental process. It will explore reasons why children struggle with spelling and what can be done to overcome these difficulties. It will also examine strategies to aid spelling development. Using case studies, it will show how to detect spelling difficulties and suggest methodologies.

Expected Outcomes:

Participants will have an increased awareness of spelling as a skill and how spelling develops. They will be able to examine children's writing and detect strengths and weaknesses and build up a profile of the child's spelling development. It will also lead participants to reflect on their own classroom practice and how the quality of errors determines spelling improvement.
