12/5/15 Ms.Lenise Moore - Orton Gillingham Reading Approach Waiting List
The Orton Gillingham reading approach is language based, multisensory, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, and flexible. It is intended for use with students who struggle with reading, spelling, and writing, but it is also an excellent multisensory tool for on-and above-level students. This instruction is designed for working with students individually, in small groups, or in large group settings. This session will teach Orton Gillingham techniques. These techniques are tools that students can learn to use for success in reading.
1/23/16 Mr. Scott Field - Using Improvisation as a Tool for Teaching and Learning
Because it is a group art form, improvisational theater games get your students moving in a cooperative way. Working kinesthetic, social emotional, and thinking pathways, improv can help you manage the energy and focus of your students and can even be used to help boost reading comprehension. Come prepared to actively participate in this highly interactive workshop.
2/20/16 Ms. Hannah Krimm
3/19/16 Ms. Nancy Duggin - Reading Stamina—Eyes on the Page
A growing number of students struggle with reading, not because they can’t read, but because they do not have the needed skills to persevere through challenging, even difficult reading tasks.
