Beginning Decoding/Encoding Seminar

This seminar consists of 35 class hours and five observations, class and lesson plan preparation, and one-on-one practice teaching with a student that will be observed and critiqued. Participants will be prepared to teach students from early education to about sixth grade reading, writing, spelling, and comprehension. Successful completion of the Seminar meets the AOGPE's application criteria for Subscriber Level membership, and begins the process for completion of the Associate Level or Classroom Educator membership.

Fees includes $300 worth of all materials needed to get started, and five supervised one-on-one sessions of practice teaching. SCECHs and CEU credits are available through Central Michigan University. Details will be available the first day of class.

Other Associate Level Beginning O-G Classes Sometimes additional classes are scheduled upon request of MDI Centers or public and private schools. Call (5l7) 485-4000 or check our calendar for information on additional classes that may be offered in your area.
