Go to http://www.Whizzimo.com/orton-gillingham.html

This upcoming Summer, I am happy to announce new on-line, Orton-Gillingham Training that will be presented in June and July. I will be presenting these new classes with Whizzimo,the premier digital teaching platform for multisensory reading and spelling. It is the ultimate way to conduct teacher training. The 30 hour, 5 day class will follow the curriculum of the Classroom Educator certification course of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.

Participants will be introduced to the concept of Dyslexia and the biological and neurological aspects.  The Orton-Gillingham Approach will be introduced.  This is the structured, sequential, cumulative, and multi-sensory approach to the teaching of language.  Participants will learn about the diagnosis and prescriptive instruction necessary.  They will be introduced to the Orton-Gillingham Lesson Plan and Student Profile. The course will show how Orton-Gillingham can be integrated into all types of classrooms (self-contained, resource room pullout, mainstream, elementary, middle, and high school) and across all content curriculum.

The course will be presented, live on-line, two times:
June 19 – 24
August 7 – 11

Each day, the class will run from 9:00am – 5:00pm EST

One Day In-Service Training

Reading and Writing: Perfect Together!

The process of writing is highly related to the process of reading: readers and writers are both constructing and composing meaning.

A  full-day in-service program for all educators; elementary, middle, high school

Participants will explore the structure of grammar, including basic sentence and paragraph types.  Mapping and outlining techniques that can be used for both reading and writing, and techniques for incorporating students’ growing vocabulary into new reading and writing experiences will be discussed.  Actual, hands-on strategies will be presented, and can be easily recreated into the elementary, middle school, and high school curriculum.


Study Skills: How to Become an Active Learner

A two-hour in-service program for educators, parents, and students. 

Participants will be introduced to the components of a Study Skills curriculum, to enable a student to become independent and actively engaged in the learning process.

Strategies on organization / time management, and homework will be presented.  Participants will be introduced to strategies to strengthen reading comprehension in both fiction and non-fiction passages.  In addition, strategies on classroom management, note-taking, and test preparation will be introduced.
