What is Structured Word Inquiry (SWI)?
“Structured word inquiry” is word- level literacy instruction that engages learners of all ages and abilities by making sense of our surprisingly logical spelling system through scientific word investigation.
Learn how educators around the world use inquiry into English spelling as a means of enriching vocabulary, reading and spelling — and to leverage learning in any subject area.
