The OG approach directly teaches students the skills to improve reading, spelling, reading comprehension, and writing.
Instruction is given by an educator specifically trained in the OG approach.
Lessons are a minimum of 2-4 times per week to insure progress and retention of information.
Each lesson involves auditory (hearing, speaking), kinesthetic-tactile (movement, writing, tracing), and visual (seeing) activities.
Students are screened so that instruction begins at a level appropriate for each child, and each lesson is individually planned based on analysis of the student's progress.
Phonological skills for reading and spelling are taught in a sequential order to ensure the greatest success for the student.
Skills are taught for mastery and all previously learned material is systematically reviewed to keep it in the student's working memory.
