Course Description

Structured Literacy (Overview of Orton-Gillingham)

English has a well-earned reputation for being difficult. English is difficult to speak, difficult to read, and difficult to spell. But it is, in fact, predictable. Nearly 80% of all words in English follow predictable patterns of sound, syllable-type, and add-on components (like prefixes, suffixes, and verb endings). This course will familiarize you with what Structured Literacy is and how to put it to use in your classroom.
