Our primary grades curriculum focuses on the whole child and uses a hands-on approach to building on developmental skills and academic milestones. Reading is not a natural ability like spoken language and requires explicit instruction, therefore all Darlington primary grades teachers and teaching assistants are Orton-Gillingham Classroom Educator trained. This advanced training draws on developmental neuroscience to provide an optimal education experience.
In this video spotlight you'll hear from Scott Greene, director of the Teaching and Learning Center, along with Tonya Greene, learning specialist, as they share about the many facets of multi-sensory learning as it relates to reading and writing. You'll also hear from second grade teacher Molly Jordan as she talks about the change she has seen in her classroom since implementing the Orton-Gillingham Method and how teaching cursive has been a game-changer for all students.
