100% SUCCESS  Literacy Intervention, Remediation, & Prevention

Teaching students to learn how to read and spell the English language correctly - meaning without asking the learners to memorize words, is not easy because English is a complex language.  When we learn English, we are learning not one, but three languages and more—each with its own phonology, structure, rules, strategies, and techniques.

 

With close to a million words and counting and has the largest vocabulary and is still growing, the English language has many variants and has one of the most complex alphabetic orthographies. Therefore, the training, workshops, and courses to learn the English language even for teachers must be divided into different levels so that it will not be too overwhelming for the participants.

With strategies and techniques, at the end of  a third-grade level, students with at least low cognitive ability and with intact vision and hearing should be able to read and spell three to four-syllable known and unknown words that follow the rules of the English language

and

 

Together, we can make the impossible, possible!

With at least 20 registrants you can pick  from our available dates: July 18, 19, 25, 26; August 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23 (subject to change) and we can come to your place and with the host accommodations and transportation for our team of four if you are outside of Laval and Montreal areas. If you do not like the dates that we have, let us know if we can arrange our schedule. 

                 

This six-hour training is ideal for kindergarten, grade one, paraprofessional, and special needs teacher because this concept is typically taught at these levels but other classroom educators can also learn this concept.

At the end of the training, participants will be able to teach students with at least low cognitive ability and with intact vision and hearing to read and spell closed syllable, one-syllable words including the exceptions to the closed syllable, meaning without memorizing  the words
