Instructor: Dr. Anthony Henley
Course Description: Evidence-based methods to help students improve executive functioning, test-taking skills, and comprehension. Instruction is based primarily on the SKORE method developed by Claire Nissenbaum, a Fellow of the Orton-Gillingham Academy and Founder of ASDEC. Participants will also learn to provide students with an overview of phonics and general study skills. In addition, they will learn how to boost test-taking skills that emphasize understanding directions and identifying key words.
Study Skills is one of four required courses for Academic Therapy (AT) Certification. Participants may begin their AT training with this course.
Next Class: February 3 - May 12, 2018 with four onsite sessions in our Rockville office.
Instructor: Marilyn Zecher
Course Description:Marilyn Zecher presents the follow-up course to Multisensory Math 1. Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Multisensory Mathematics II applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the National Council of Teachers of Math (NCTM). Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills such as multiplication, division and fractions to operations in upper levels of math including Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ELL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.
Successul completion of Multisensory Math 1 is required prior to enrolling in Math 2.
Next Class: December 15 to January 26, 2019. With two online meetings with the instructors.
Multisensory Math 1: January 12-March 30, 2019. Registration will open in October.
Instructor: Marilyn ZecherCourse Description: Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Marilyn Zecher's Multisensory Mathematics I applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the NCTM. Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills and numeracy to place value, operations, fractions and decimals. Participants learn to use manipulatives effectively to reinforce concepts, aid memory and enhance performance for all students. Strategies for helping students learn and retrieve math facts are stressed as well as structured procedures for computational accuracy. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ESL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.
