It is suitable for teachers of elementary classes (grades K-4) and is most beneficial for primary grade teachers. 

Associate Practice Teaching and Advanced Phonics: provides comprehensive knowledge and hands-on practice with the multisensory principles of teaching and structured language instruction in reading, writing, and spelling. This evidence-based approach is effective for both initial reading instruction and for remediation with older students with deficits in reading. It includes lectures, small group learning, and a one-on-one practice teaching component with your own student.

Note: There is a 10-hours Subscriber course prerequisite. Coursework includes additional asynchronous hours between sessions and working with your own student. Participants secure a student on their own to work with in a face-to-face format. See full details in link below.  

Practicum: As a follow-up to the Associate course, a supervised teaching practicum offers teachers and tutors the opportunity to obtain continued support from an experienced OG practitioner while working with a group, class, or one-to-one over a nine-month to twenty four month period in their own school or clinical setting. The practicum component is a requirement for course participation and for credentialing at the Certified Academic Language Practitioner Level,  Associate or  Classroom Educator Level.  *The practicum is a separate fee from the coursework.
