Where: The National Museum of the American Indian
1 Bowling Green, NY, NY 10004

Offered in collaboration with the National Museum of the American Indian, this course provides strategies to support oral language development as the basis for reading and writing. Learn simple activities for phonological awareness and vocabulary development and gain a deeper understanding of the power of oral traditions and non-text-based storytelling in different Native communities, using visual literacy, culturally specific oral vocabulary, and object based learning.


Sounds in Motion Workshop

DATE: Sunday, January 12, 2020
TIME: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm – (6 NYSED CTLE Hours)
(Includes a movement practice thumb drive, workbook of instructions and materials for 15 weekly lessons)
This all day program will teach you a collaborative classroom phoneme stimulation approach used with preschool, kindergarten and first grade children, and with older students who are having difficulty learning to read.
Originally designed to improve listening and articulation skills, it has evolved into a phonemic awareness and early literacy tool. The two most important aspects of this program are the use of body movements from the Verbotonal Method to train perception and production of speech sounds, and the development of active listening skills for early learners. Strategies for English Language Learners and special populations will also be addressed.

Get ready to move – this technique is unique and fun!

30 Hours - 4 Days

The Comprehensive Training provides participants with an in-depth understanding of IMSE's Orton-Gillingham methodology over the course of 30 hours. This course is a more traditional OG approach that focuses primarily on phonological awareness and phonics (along with encoding/decoding). Participants will also discuss how to teach fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension using the OG philosophy of multi-sensory, sequential, direct instruction. This approach can be incorporated into an already existing literacy program as well as stand alone.

This course is primarily geared towards elementary aged students and/or students who have very little knowledge of phonological awareness, phonics, basic literacy skills. This course is applicable for all three tiers of RTI. Therefore, the course is for:
  • K-2 General Education Teachers as well as 3rd grade emergent readers
  • Lower Elementary Special Education Teachers
  • Lower Elementary Title 1 Teachers, Literacy Coaches
  • Tutors
  • Speech Language Therapists who want to expand their knowledge in literacy
  • Lower Elementary English Language Learners (ELL)
  • Anyone who wants to expand and enrich their knowledge in the foundation of the English language.

Participants will learn:

  • How to administer IMSE informal criterion referenced assessments
  • Phonological awareness assessment and strategies
  • Multi-sensory strategies for reading, writing and spelling phonetic and non phonetic words
  • Seven syllable types and 4 syllable patterns for encoding / decoding
