I am requesting funds to attend a 5-day comprehensive training in Nashville, Tennessee that provides an in-depth understanding of the Orton-Gillingham methodology, focusing primarily on phonological awareness and phonics (along with encoding and decoding). We will also learn how to teach fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension using the OG philosophy of multi-sensory, sequential, direct instruction. Orton-Gillingham is a highly structured approach that breaks reading and spelling down into smaller skills involving letters and sounds, and then building on these skills over time. It also was the first approach to use multi-sensory teaching strategies to teach reading, which is considered extremely effective for teaching students with dyslexia. This means using sight, hearing, touch, and movement to help students connect and learn the concepts being taught. By attending this training I hope to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to help all of my students become effective readers, writers, and spellers. Not only would my current students directly benefit from the knowledge I would gain from this training, but my future students would as well. I would also be able to share the techniques and strategies from this training with my colleagues, who in turn, would be able to use them with their students.
