Mastery Series

Orton Gillingham Mastery Series

If we are serious about changing the lives of struggling readers, then as OG Practitioners we must be lifelong learners and develop a deep understanding of current research, best practices, and practical applications. We want to gather every month (virtually) to learn from each other and create a true Orton Gillingham Community!   We are providing monthly online opportunities for educators to learn together, share ideas, best practices, and support one another. Please join us!

  • Seminars, book studies, or workshops are held ONLINE on the 4th Thursday of the month, January through October, from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. CST. (No Mastery Series is presented in November or December)
  • There is no cost for the Mastery Series, but you must purchase your own books and materials, where applicable.
  • View course syllabus here.
  • Our next Mastery Series Book Study begins in June!  Please join us – register below!

Coming in June 2022 – more good stuff from Maryanne Wolfe!

The author of the acclaimed Proust and the Squid follows up with a lively, ambitious, and deeply informative book that considers the future of the reading brain and our capacity for critical thinking, empathy, and reflection as we become increasingly dependent on digital technologies.

A decade ago, Maryanne Wolf’s Proust and the Squid revealed what we know about how the brain learns to read and how reading changes the way we think and feel. Since then, the ways we process written language have changed dramatically with many concerned about both their own changes and that of children. New research on the reading brain chronicles these changes in the brains of children and adults as they learn to read while immersed in a digitally dominated medium.
