Language Arts Curriculum

Orton-Gillingham

The principals of Orton-Gillingham are the foundation of the Language Arts Curriculum for Learning Disabilities. The foundational “O-G” Orton-Gillingham principles direct that the curriculum adapt to meet the needs of each student. Each component of the reading /writing curricula occurs in a structured /sequential order. Within the learning process the evolution is from simple to complex language concepts. O-G utilizes a multi-sensory teaching strategies for the most effective presentation of the curriculum to each student. There is an ongoing cumulative review of the process to ensure each student’s mastery of skills.

Supplemental Programs to the Language Arts Curriculum

In addition to the Orton-Gillingham approach, supplemental language arts programs utilized at Bainbridge Academy include the “HWT” Hand Writing Without Tears Program (R).

Handwriting Without Tears (HWT)

Because Handwriting remains a critical skill for the classroom. Children need a strong foundation to be successful readers, writers and communicators. Since the HWT Program for the language arts curriculum draws from years of innovation and research. The HWT Program provides developmentally appropriate, multi-sensory strategies for writing. Because the HWT Program follows research of how children learn best and includes materials that address all learning styles. Also at Bainbridge Academy our students can learn Cursive Handwriting.

Writing

Because the lessons will progress from simple to more complex sentence construction. The paragraph writing moves from theme-based sentences to more and more complex paragraphs. Since this includes topic and concluding sentences. Then expanded paragraphs and then moving on to report writing.
