Brighton Educational Training Event
Topic: SEE Teacher Training Certification
July 29 – August 2, 2019, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Sequential English Education (SEE) SEE is an International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC) accredited and International Dyslexia Association (IDA) accredited course utilizing structured, multisensory language instruction, based on the Sequential English Education approach for teaching reading/ writing/comprehension/spelling and auditory discrimination and memory. In addition, for those who teach in a Montessori classroom, SEE blends easily into the Montessori methods.
The lesson includes these activities:
Language: Each lesson presents the patterns of the English language to the student moving from simple to complex.
Alphabet: Visual recognition of upper and lower case letters and the sequence of the alphabet are covered.
Sound/Symbol Correspondence: The sound of each letter is presented and reviewed for automaticity.
Word Families: Perceiving the internal detail of words by identifying the word family within the word is practiced.
Decoding & Reading Comprehension: The therapy process begins with an emphasis on decoding, breaking words into parts and blending the parts into whole words. As accuracy improves, speed increases, fluency is improved, and then words are accurately decoded and defined. In addition, paraphrasing sentences helps to increase reading comprehension.
Oral Language Development: Each word that is decoded is defined and used in a sentence. Word meanings are the basis of comprehension of sentences, paragraphs and stories. Each sentence is paraphrased insuring meaning and building vocabulary.
Handwriting: Each lesson includes a presentation of the letter being taught. This teaching is highly multi-sensory. The student traces the letter in their manual, on their memory board and writes it from memory on paper. As letters are mastered, letter connections, spacing, pencil pressure and consistency of writing slant are improved. Word and sentence writing expands to composition.
Spelling: As a student learns to decode the patterns of the language, he learns to spell those patterns. Reading, writing and spelling are seen to reinforce each other.
Dictation: Each lesson provides that the student listen for words, phrases and sentences and practice the skill of holding this information in memory while transferring it to paper.
Review: Review of previous material is built into each lesson. Reviews are also placed at regular intervals in the student manuals and surveys are given at the end of each of the three manuals to determine mastery.
Listening: Listening skills are enhanced throughout the SEE lessons, but an additional program, Auditory Discrimination and Memory is an integral part of this program. These drills improve listening, following directions and spelling.
