Class Experience

Students will learn:
* How to apply their verbal language skills to illustrations in order to practice their visualizing skills.
* How to attach an image in their mind to verbal language in order to practice their skills in describing an image.
* How to create a mental image for written sentences and paragraphs in order to comprehend the written word and answer comprehension questions.

As a special education teacher for 19 years, I have been using the Lindamood Bell techniques for decoding, comprehension, and math. This class will use the "Visualize & Verbalize" program which focuses on reading comprehension skills. The Lindamood Bell method combines auditory, visual, and language skills for a comprehensive approach for the struggling learner. 
There will be minimal handouts / worksheets for this class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parents are invited to observe the class in order to carry over the skill as they work with their child at home.
