Educator Academy

Educator Training Cohort - February 2018

We Offer Free, Orton-Gillingham Based Training Opportunities for Local Educators.

We’ve heard you. You want OG training, but the normal cost is simply out of reach. Our goal is to help you succeed in the classroom by underwriting solid OG training at little or no cost to you.

In 2014, we sponsored 10 local educators at the national AOGPE conference. In summer 2015 and 2016, national reading expert Ron Yoshimoto trained our first two cohorts of public school educators.

In summer 2018, READWS will hold three 4-day OGI trainings in conjunction with WSFCS. Dates are: June 25-29, OR July 23-27, OR August 6-10. Again, both target schools and educators will be selected by a WSFCS administrative team.  To learn more about Yoshimoto OGI training, click here.

Educators - we want to support you.

Teaching a classroom full of students with an enormous disparity of reading levels can be a challenge. Sometimes a student needs more individual attention than resources allow. Through its Augustine ProjectⓇ tutoring program, READWS  provides well-trained volunteer tutors who work at whatever level a struggling student needs, no matter the grade level. Tutors work 1:1  using an Orton-Gillingham  approach.  Tutors come twice weekly, usually for 45-60 minutes, and  they work at the pace the student can be successful.  This program is open to economically disadvantaged students.

We're Here to Help!

If you are a school, we would be happy to come share what we’ve learned during the last 17 years as we’ve worked with economically disadvantaged students with reading problems. If you are an individual educator, we are happy to share ideas, point you to resources, or create new resources that would help you. READWS wants to serve you.
