ALREADY STRUCTURES® TRAINED?

Instead of taking the Phonics First® course, which is a mirror of the Structures® course, we strongly recommend taking the Level II course instead. Level II includes Phonics First® materials, details on teaching Phonics First®, and much more.  LEARN ABOUT the LEVEL II COURSE here.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This comprehensive and highly intensive course qualifies teachers to bring Orton-Gillingham multisensory instruction to their classrooms. Phonics First® transforms beginning, struggling, at-risk readers, and students with dyslexia and learning differences into skilled learners through our effective, fun, multisensory approach to reading and spelling.

NEW FEATURE: Course participants receive one-year, online access to the Phonics First® Course Review. This on-demand access allows teachers to review content, skills and strategies for all lesson components.

Participants learn to teach:

  • Alphabet and phonological awareness strategies
  • Basic and advanced phonetic concepts for decoding and encoding
  • A Three-Part Drill for structured review
  • Tactile/kinesthetic spelling techniques for phonetic and non-phonetic words
  • Syllabication for multisyllabic words (8 Syllable Types/3 Syllable Patterns)
  • Higher-level spelling skills
  • Oral reading/connected text fluency

Additional benefits:

  • Guidance with lesson planning and classroom implementation
  • Opportunities for hands-on lesson practice with other participants
  • Emphasis on teaching reading to beginning, struggling, at-risk readers, and students with dyslexia and learning differences using Orton-Gillingham methodology
  • Complimentary Brainspring Members Area Access: reproducible lesson resources and activities

Upon completion, participants will:

  • Receive a document of completion
  • Be prepared to teach Phonics First® phonics (decoding and encoding) content to kindergarten through 5th grade students at all Tiers
  • Be eligible for Level II and to apply for Brainspring’s nationally recognized certification program
  • Be eligible to purchase two Graduate Credits (Ashland University)

A Brainspring Instructor provides onsite professional development in your school or district. The Instructor works directly with teachers in a group setting to facilitate hands-on instruction, so each teacher has the opportunity to learn to utilize and implement the program correctly.
