IMSE Intermediate Orton-Gillingham Training (30 hours)
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 approach can be incorporated into an already existing literacy program. *See note below about overlap between the Comprehensive and Intermediate courses.
The Intermediate course is primarily geared towards upper elementary aged students and/or students who lack a basic knowledge of orthography, morphology, and vocabulary. This course is applicable for all three tiers of RTI. Therefore, the course is for:
3-5 General Education
3-12 Special Education, Remedial, Tutors
Speech Language Therapists who want to expand their knowledge in literacy
Adult Literacy Educators
Anyone else who wants to expand their knowledge in orthography and morphology
Participants will learn:
- Higher level spelling rules
- Syllabication patterns for encoding and decoding
- Morphology- affixes, Latin and Greek bases
- Guidelines for weekly lesson plans
- IMSE Intermediate Training Manual
- Unlocking Literacy by Marcia Henry
- Vocabulary Handbook by Diamond and Guttlohn
- IMSE Encoding and Decoding Teacher Guide and Student Workbook
- IMSE Morphology Card Pack
- 3 week trial of IOG (available for purchase after trial)
IMSE OG Weekly:
In addition to the above materials, participants who complete the training will automatically be eligible to receive OG Weekly, IMSE's weekly email support system, designed to provide continued guidance after the completion of your training.
*Regarding the Comprehensive and Intermediate courses, participants do not have to take one before the other. Participants can simply take the course that best fits their needs. If desired, participants can also take both courses. The primary areas of focus in the Comprehensive course include phonological awareness, phonics, and encoding/decoding. The primary areas of focus in the Intermediate course are orthography, encoding/decoding, morphology, and vocabulary. Please know that for people who choose to take both courses, encoding/decoding (which includes word/sentence dictation, 7 syllable types, 4 syllable patterns, and red words) is taught in both courses. The Intermediate course focuses on how to teach these concepts to older students, whereas the Comprehensive course focuses on how to teach concepts to younger students. Please note that while the Intermediate course reviews some content covered in the Comprehensive course, the Intermediate course will provide participants a deeper understanding of the material.
