Adult Advanced Course

Summer 2024 Registration is Closed

In order to enroll in the Advanced Course, a participant must have successfully completed the Extended Practicum. The participants will learn strategies to teach advanced reading and spelling skills including morphology (assimilative prefixes, roots, advanced suffixes), semantics, and syntax to improve fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. The OG approach is a direct, explicit, structured, systematic, cumulative, and multi-sensory method that includes supportive error correction and analysis to drive instruction.  The participant will create lesson plans and work with students in a supervised practicum setting.

Participants are responsible for ordering their own course materials – a list of required materials will be provided upon registration.

NEW THIS YEAR:  As you know, each participant is required to work with two students.  For the Advanced course, the participant will bring one student with them; OGMN will provide the second student. The student that the participants bring may be tutored either in person or online. You will receive an email after registration with more details.

Participants must attend all ten sessions.
