"I’m sure you hear this all the time but I need to say it anyway……
Thank you for a wonderful class! I wish this course were required for all teachers and a part of teacher preparation courses. I will be encouraging as many colleagues as I can to try and get into your class. I have learned an abundant amount of valuable strategies that will benefit me, my colleagues and my students for a very long time. I have already been using what I have learned in my second grade classroom and am seeing results. I can’t wait to do summer school with grades 1-3 so that I can reach more students who need these approaches. I feel encouraged that we can finally begin to close some gaps and not just watch the gap increase by doing the same things more slowly over and over but instead use systematic OG approaches that will in fact truly help our students close their gaps in learning and become more confident in their abilities.

Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Multisensory Mathematics I applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the NCTM. Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills and numeracy to place value, operations, fractions and decimals. Participants learn to use manipulatives effectively to reinforce concepts, aid memory and enhance performance for all students. Strategies for helping students learn and retrieve math facts are stressed as well as structured procedures for computational accuracy. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ESL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.
