Once learners "crack the code," or master the decoding of the English language, the real fun begins! The English language is complicated, fascinating, and entirely amazing. In this course, I will guide learners through a structured approach to examining the English language. This class is built on the Orton-Gillingham approach to instruction. It combines decades of the best reading science with strong practice and routines so students gain confidence and practice in a hands-on, integrated,...
Students will improve their understanding of the English language, its history and structure, its grammar and usage rules, and spelling and writing conventions.
I am a certified elementary teacher with years of experience in preschool and second grade. I have also taught ESL for 3 years on-line, and hold an MA in Teaching from Dominican University. I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach through IMSE (30-hour morphology plus course).
Occasional homework will be assigned. This might include completion of a worksheet, practice with a game, or review of affix/root flash cards (made by students during class). **PLEASE NOTE: Younger learners may need help with the organization of our interactive notebook. Please contact me at any time for instructions to make the notebook something that can be useful for learners during and after our course.***
All learners should use a 1-inch 3-ring binder with dividers (5 or more is fine). Print-outs will be provided each week and these should be added to the notebook for student reference (having a 3-hole punch can be very helpful). All learners should bring a whiteboard and marker, as well as a pencil, to each class. In addition, learners should have a set of notecards that are 4x6 inches and come in 5 colors: yellow, blue, lavender, pink, and green.
