Orton Gillingham Training - Thank You!

Orton Gillingham Training - Thank You!
Posted on 08/21/2017
Teachers at Orton Gillingham TrainingWe would like to extend a huge thank you to our Parmalee community for sponsoring our staff in being trained in the Orton Gillingham method of teaching reading, writing, and spelling. Our staff, along with seventy teachers from various Jeffco schools took part in this intensive 30-hour training. The Orton Gillingham training, gave our staff strategies to fine tune instructional skills necessary to be able to assess, evaluate, and teach children more proficiently in literacy.

While the skills learned were mostly targeted for K-3 students, all teachers were trained and provided our staff with a common understanding of language acquisition in the early elementary grades. Ultimately, we would like to train our 3-5 grade teachers in the 24 hour Advanced Continuum training where they would learn instructional techniques for teaching advanced encoding/decoding, Greek and Latin bases, vocabulary, writing, and grammar. We are excited to implement these new techniques in a systemic and systematic way this school year. We couldn’t have done this without the financial support of our community. Thank you for helping us make a positive difference in the lives of all our students.
