Advanced SWR 3-day 2009

This special three-day ADVANCED seminar is designed as a follow-up class for alumni of a basic seminar or equivalent. The focus is upper level spelling (starting at either Section P or S) and more detailed work with the reference pages.

This is specifically for teachers of 3rd grade and above, with more advanced topics in grammar, composition, and spelling enrichments (though teachers of younger children will be able to use many ideas also.) You must be an alumni of the basic class (or equivalent)  to attend this class. You will not be considered a alumni of the Advanced class unless you have taken a previous Advanced SWR class.

Prerequiste: Alumni of a basic TRHS or SWR seminar. The advance class will start at Section P in WISE Guide and build an Advanced Learning Log.

Schedule:See specific seminars for registration and class times as they are different. Lunch on your own. No child care provided.

Handouts Provided: Each participant will receive a blank learning log (primary for the basic and black for the advanced), a regular and a red pencil, and class handouts.

Supplies Required: At class you are required to have SWR, Wise Guide, Phonogram Cards, and blank lined notebook paper. Advanced study of the curriculum is advised. Materials will be sold on site but to assure an adequate supply, please specify ahead of time items you hope to purchase.

Preregistration: We appreciate registrations a month to two-weeks prior to the class so that we can properly plan to serve you. If you need to register later because of some condition outside of your control, please contact your local hostess to confirm space availability.
Cost: $195 regular/ $98 for special guests. Special guests include: additional family members of same immediate family, single parents, missionaries, senior pastors and wives, alumni of an earlier Advanced SWR class. Some scholarships are available.
