Course Description

T.I.M.E. for Teachers™ Foundational Literacy Skills provides a conceptual understanding of how children learn to read and the elements of effective reading and spelling instruction. This course draws on current research, developmental models, and practical teaching strategies and activities to help teachers understand students’ evolving insights into the workings of our alphabetic system. Participants will gain an awareness of the power and usefulness of explicit, systematic instruction in phonemic awareness, phonology, phonics, and morphology. Participants will also leave this course understanding how the English language works and how teachers can foster literacy for all learners. Knowing how our language works is the key to delivering quality reading and spelling instruction. This course is available for three graduate credits.

By far, I have never taken another course that stands up to the instruction I received during my Orton-Gillingham training in the summer. I cannot speak highly enough of the instructors I have had over the course of two years.
