从阅读障碍家长到奥顿-格林厄姆教育者的导师之旅

从阅读障碍家长到奥顿-格林厄姆教育者的导师之旅
Diane Hutchinson, Lower School Tutor


⭐️Belonging is teaching from experience.

当她的儿子被诊断患有阅读障碍时,黛安·哈钦森感到无助. “Here, I am with a master’s in special education, a special education teaching license, and an elementary teaching license, yet I didn’t know how to help him.” Having heard about Carroll’s reputation and its Orton-Gillingham courses 通过加赛德教师培训学院(GIFTT),黛安渴望报名.

“我接受了为期一年的助理培训,然后就爱上了卡罗尔. I thought I’d go back to public school but, when it came down to it, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. 我的导师、同事、图书馆——他们都是无价的. 在公立学校,我会觉得自己像个圆圈,想挤进一个正方形. 在低年级,我可以成为我想成为的老师.”

问:卡罗尔如何帮助你成为你想成为的老师?

For many of the families I’ve worked with, 在来卡罗尔之前,有过挣扎,有时是彻底的失败. Every adult here is sensitive to that lived experience. 卡罗尔使我能够给学生提供他们需要的空间和时间,与学生建立牢固的信任关系. 我告诉我的学生,我对他们有很高的期望,但我永远不会让他们对我没有直接和明确地教给他们的东西负责.

问:你正规的买球软件最需要的东西是什么??

It really starts before I meet the child. 我什么都看——神经心理学报告、教育评估、iep. The most important to me is the parents’ statement. They are the experts on their child—their strengths, what they enjoy doing, their unique personalities. 我试图找到一些共同点,将其融入到我们的课程中. 如果他们渴望运动,我们就出去,在人行道上或运动活动上用粉笔. I’ll have my artistic friends shape letters with clay. One student loves sharks; all his work is on shark paper.

问:描述一个你最引以为豪的教学时刻.

The best are when students have “a ha” moments. 我有一个学生喜欢在一年中的不同时间复习他的笔记本. 他非常自豪地看到以这种可见的方式取得的进步,我们谈论他为克服障碍所做的艰苦工作. In tutoring, 我要求学生们做真正困难的事情——他们必须独立思考, feel ok making mistakes, explain their thinking. Orton-Gillingham的方法给人一种真正的自信.
