Description

IMSE Comprehensive Orton-Gillingham Training (30 hours)

The Comprehensive Training provides participants with an in-depth understanding of IMSE's Orton-Gillingham methodology over the course of 30 hours. This course is a more traditional OG approach that focuses primarily on phonological awareness and phonics (along with encoding/decoding). Participants will also discuss how to teach fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension using the OG philosophy of multi-sensory, sequential, direct instruction. This approach can be incorporated into an already existing literacy program as well as stand-alone. *See note.

This course is primarily geared towards elementary-aged students and/or students who have very little knowledge of phonological awareness, phonics, basic literacy skills. This course is applicable for all three tiers of RTI.

 

Therefore, the course is for:

  • K-2 General Education Teaches as well as 3rd-grade emergent readers
  • Lower Elementary Special Education Teachers
  • Lower Elementary Title 1 Teachers, Literacy Coaches
  • Tutors
  • Speech-Language Therapists who want to expand their knowledge in literacy
  • Lower Elementary English Language Learners (ELL)
  • Anyone who wants to expand and enrich their knowledge in the foundation of the English language.

 

Participants will learn:

  • How to administer IMSE informal criterion-referenced assessments
  • Phonological awareness assessment and strategies
  • Multi-sensory strategies for reading, writing and spelling phonetic and non-phonetic words
  • Seven syllable types and 4 syllable patterns for encoding/decoding
  • Explicit, multi-sensory strategies for teaching fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension
  • Guidelines for weekly lesson plans
 
Materials Provided:
  • IMSE Comprehensive Training and Assessment Manual
  • Recipe for Reading by Bloom and Traub
  • IMSE Comprehensive Syllable Division Word Book
  • Phonological Awareness: Assessment Tools & Strategies by Zgonc
  • IMSE Phoneme Grapheme Card Pack

IMSE OG Weekly

In addition to the above materials, participants who complete the training will automatically be eligible to receive OG Weekly, IMSE's email support series designed to provide continuing guidance after the completion of your training.
 
NOTE: *Regarding the Comprehensive and Intermediate courses, participants do not have to take one before the other. Participants can simply take the course that best fits their needs. Participants can also take both courses if desired. The primary focus in the Comprehensive is Phonological Awareness, Phonics, and Encoding/Decoding. The primary focus in the Intermediate is orthography, encoding/decoding, morphology, and vocabulary. Please know that for people who choose to take both courses, encoding/decoding (which includes word/sentence dictation, 7 syllable types, 4 syllable patterns, and red words) are taught in both courses. The Intermediate focuses on how to teach these concepts to older students, whereas the Comprehensive focuses on how to teach it to younger students. You will go over content that you may already know, but it will provide a deeper understanding for all participants.
