The IMSE Intermediate training provides participants with an understanding of IMSE’s Orton-Gillingham methodology specifically designed for upper elementary or older students who require foundational reading skills and continue to struggle in literacy development. Participants will learn how to teach advanced spelling rules, encoding/decoding with seven syllable types, morphology, and vocabulary. This course offers more of an in-depth study on orthography (advanced spelling rules) and morphology (affixes, Greek/Latin bases) for struggling students, but will include some phonics as well. This training is appropriate for 3-5 General Education Teachers, 3-12 Special Education and Remedial Educators, Tutors, ELL Educators, Speech Language Therapists who want to expand their knowledge in literacy, and Adult Literacy Educators. Thanks to the McKinney-Vento Grant the cost to attend this training is $150/participant which includes lunch and snacks each day along materials for the training. This training will be held on July 26th - 30th from 8:00-4:00 at the ROE #3 Professional Development Center. Registration will begin at 7:30 on Monday July 26th. Thirty-five professional development hours will be provided to all participants who complete the course on Friday, July 30th.
