What are educator training classes?

All language arts studies rely on complex underlying language skills. Success in reading and writing requires explicit teaching strategies that cross these intertwined skill areas.

Our classes dive deeply into each underlying language arts skill area, equipping educators to meet individual student needs. Deep learning strategies are provided and demonstrated, helping educators know how to best teach reading and writing skills at all learning levels. We show you methods that are effective and research-based. All classes include a comprehensive Instructional Plan, which can be used by the educator as their teaching guide going forward.

In the live class, you will have the opportunity to ask questions. Class recordings will be made available to all participants after the course, viewable for up to 12 months. You must have a Zoom account to participate in our classes. This account is free and easy to set up at www.zoom.us

What will I learn?

Educators will learn how to help students who have difficulty with this necessary piece of reading and writing! We will share evidence-based practices to help students who struggle with handwriting. Students must gain a level of automatic skill in order to use writing to learn and express themselves.

We work specifically with children who have handwriting weakness and dysgraphia, and we have experience guiding educators and parents in teaching students this key skill.

In this class, we will share our order of teaching, our multisensory strategies, and a plan for progress that can be tailored to each student’s specific needs. Additionally, all classes provide an Instructional Plan which includes:

  • Our general teaching principles

  • Research on handwriting difficulties

  • A glossary of relevant terms

  • Step-by-step overview of our teaching strategies and approach

How will it help?

Handwriting is deeply rooted in the language system. It is a complicated, multisensory ability that relies on auditory processing, visual understanding, skin sensation, and spatial skills. Handwriting requires continuous attention and a foundation of automatic skills for a student to experience success. Identifying all the pieces in this complex puzzle can be daunting. Putting those pieces into an achievable plan can be overwhelming. The Handwriting class is designed to help educators create a road map to success for their students with handwriting struggles!
