in late 2022! (Stay safe, everyone!)

Focus: Differentiation (Minimum booking of 10 hours)

All K through grade 3 teachers, support staff, and administration in the school receive a presentation during which Nancy presents an overview of her Ladder of Reading & Writing, followed by time in which to work collaboratively with Nancy to determine how to better differentiate instruction within that school. Such an approach may encompass mapping out the existing reading/spelling/writing instruction within a school, and then determining how to improve the provision of differentiated instruction to serve both the personal strengths and the learning needs of all students – whether they have dyslexia or are advanced readers. This may include the recommendation of additional resources to enhance instruction at any stage. Minimum 10 hours must be booked. 

 

For individual teachers and families wishing to receive support in differentiation, the process is customized as per the classroom situation or individual student (for family support). Minimum of 5 hours must be booked.

Focus: Enhancing Instruction Using Movement (Minimum booking 5 hours) 

All K to grade 3 teachers and their support staff in a school (including PE teachers) receive a presentation during which Nancy reviews the components underlying effective reading instruction (referring to her Ladder of Reading & Writing) and then presents a brief synopsis of the research supporting enhancement of instruction using skill-based movement. Nancy will then work with small groups of educators K through grade 3 to help them see ways to weave movement into their reading/spelling/writing instruction. The purchase of Nancy Young’s book, “Secret Code Actions” is a requirement for all educators working with Nancy in these small groups. Minimum of 5 hours must be booked. 

 

For individual teachers and families wishing to receive support in enhancing instruction using movement, the process is customized as per the classroom situation or individual student (for family support).
