This three-day virtual course will provide concrete strategies for making math accessible to all learners. Using a math program developed by language and math specialist Marilyn Zecher, Shefa’s math program applies Orton-Gillingham multisensory instructional strategies to mathematics.

Learn effective methods for teaching math concepts and explicit instructional language to support understanding and retention. Concepts from lower and middle school will be modeled with special emphasis on skills taught in K-5, including numeracy, place value, basic operations, multiplication and division, fractions and decimals.
