1. "Beyond Measure" Film Screening - Innovation in Action

Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Dates: 5/2/2017

Starting Soon
Every day we hear stories about America’s troubled education system. And we’re told that in order to fix what’s broken, we need to narrow our curricula, standardize our classrooms, and find new ways to measure students and teachers. But what if these “fixes” are making our schools worse. In “Beyond Measure”, we set out to challenge the assumptions of our current education story. Rather than ask why our students fail to measure up, this film asks us to reconsider the greater purpose of education. What if our education system valued personal growth over test scores? Put inquiry over mimicry? Encouraged passion over rankings? What if we decided that the higher aim of school was not the transmission of facts or formulas, but the transformation of every student? And what if this paradigm-shift was driven from the ground up? By students, parents, and educators? By all of us? In “Beyond Measure”, we find a revolution brewing in public schools across the country. From rural Kentucky to New York City, schools that are breaking away from an outmoded, test-driven education are shaping a new vision for our classrooms. These are schools that see critical thinking, communication, exploration, experimentation, collaboration, and creativity as the key to good education. And they are dramatically improving outcomes for children of all backgrounds. They are schools where practically every student graduates and goes on to finish college. “Beyond Measure” offers a positive picture of what’s possible in American education when communities decide they are ready for change. Are you?

REWARDS Intermediate and Secondary are intense, short-term intervention programs for struggling readers in grades 4-12 who have mastered basic reading skills (single syllable word attack), but experience difficulty reading multisyllabic words in grade level materials, or who read slowly. In preparation for decoding longer words, pre-skill lesson activities focus on identifying the distinctive, visual features (affixes & vowel patterns) and phonological elements (orally dictated syllables) of multi-syllable words.

38. Patterns for Success in Reading and Spelling (a.m. session)

Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Dates: 6/20/2017

Based on the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading, spelling and writing, Patterns for Success is a streamlined, remedial program for students in Grades 2-12 who have specific reading disabilities, including dyslexia. Each 30-45 minute lesson follows a structured, sequential, multisensory format (visual, auditory & kinesthetic activities) for group or individual instruction. Parts 1 & 2 focus on Anglo-Saxon derived letter-sound correspondences, syllable patterns, affixes, and additional phonics. Part 3, for older students, focuses on morpheme patterns (meaning-based units derived from Latin roots, prefixes and suffixes, and Greek combining forms). Lessons format includes a card drill (cards included), review of previously taught concepts, presentation of new concepts, reading word lists, spelling word lists, phrases for dictation, and extension activities. Questions? Contact Tom Diebold at tdiebold@earthlink.net. 1-hour of Ashland University graduate credit is available for an additional $249 if attending two full days of training.
Visualizing and Verbalizing (V/V) is a supplemental intervention program, designed to instruct and improve reading and listening comprehension, as well as oral and written expression, through the development of concept imagery, for students who can decode well, but struggle to comprehend. The approach aligns with Paivio’s Dual Coding Theory (DCT), which identifies two modes for processing information: imagery and language. Visualizing and Verbalizing relies on teacher-directed questions and twelve “Structure Words” (what, size, color, shape, etc.) to assist students in forming images as they read. The scope and sequence delineates each step for students to progress through (Picture-to-Picture, Word Imaging, Sentence Imaging, Multiple Sentence Imaging, Paragraph Imaging, and Paragraph-by-Paragraph Imaging). 30-minute group lessons should be provided 3-5 times per week for 8-12 weeks. Daily, 60-minute sessions for 8-12 weeks are recommended for students requiring one-on-one instruction. The Visualizing and Verbalizing kit includes the teacher’s manual, V/V Stories Book 1, colored pictures, overhead transparencies, structure word cards, and colored squares. Additional story books, workbooks, and multi-media materials are also available. Questions? Contact Tom Diebold at tdiebold@earthlink.net. 1-hour of Ashland University graduate credit is available for an additional $249 if attending two full days of training.
