I am a dedicated and creative literacy specialist with 20+ years of experience working with students of all ages. I hold permanent certification from New York State in Reading (grades K-12). I am also a certified Wilson Reading System dyslexia practitioner. I have extensive experience with Orton-Gow methods for literacy re/mediation; the foundation for that work was the introductory training I received through the Gow Teacher Training Institute. I taught Orton-Gow (Reconstructive Language) at the Gow School and the Gow School Summer Program for several years. Across the past decade, as a teacher educator and university reading center director, I helped to prepare several hundred reading teachers and literacy specialists in NY and PA. 

I completed my undergraduate degree at The Catholic University of America School of Music. My doctoral and master’s degrees were earned at the University at Buffalo School of Education, under the advisement of Dr. Michael W. Kibby, a nationally known literacy diagnostician and scholar.  I have presented my research at several national and international conferences, including Literacy Research Association, International Reading Association, and International Dyslexia Association.
The Wilson program recommends 180-240 minutes of instruction per week; however, this class only meets for 75 minutes. For that reason, Dr. Wieland asks parents to team up with her by using similar routines with students 15-20 minutes a day. Each week, parents and students are provided with a copy of the lesson materials used in the class as well as additional words, sentences, and controlled passages to use for homework.
WRS STUDENT READER 2, 4TH EDITION )$12.00 + S+H) During the classes, students will need to have the following supplies on or near their workspaces: -- a small handheld whiteboard -- whiteboard markers -- whiteboard eraser or wipes -- blank sentence strips RECOMMENDED but not required: Wilson Sound Cards, 4th edition ($17.90 plus S+H) Wilson Magnetic Journal with Tiles, 4th edition ($29.99 + S+H)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Each 10-part Wilson lesson involves assessment of word recognition in Part 4 and assessment of spelling in Parts 6-8 as well as informal assessment of oral reading fluency in Parts 5, 9, & 10. Based on student results on these assessments, Dr. Wieland determined whether to deliver another lesson at the same substep of the program the following week or climb up a substep. At the end of each Wilson "Book" (level), Dr. Wieland administers the recommended post-tests.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This class may be appropriate for children outside of the stated age band. Please contact Dr. Wieland to discuss your child's situation, strengths, and needs.

The Google Docs app is used during these sessions to lead students through sound card drills, word recognition and syllabication exercises, and the reading of sentences and decodable passages. Depending on students’ ages, they complete their dictated spelling practice on the shared Zoom whiteboard or by typing within our shared Google Docs files. additional words, sentences, and passages for home practice are provided in Google Docs format. The links to these files are sent to the students via the Zoom chat feature and posted on the classroom page. Students are not required to create Google accounts and they can write in shared files anonymously. However, if they want those files to be saved long-term in their Google Drives or in their parents’ Google Drives, they will need to request file access from the instructor.

The Quizlet app is used occasionally in class and between classes to study meaning vocabulary and practice spelling. The instructor has a professional subscription and makes study sets. Links to those study sets are provided to students. During class, students sometimes play QuizletLive using game links shared during class. Students are not required to create Quizlet accounts and they can play Quizlet games under pseudonyms if they choose.
