The New Year’s countdown is on: The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl will kick off again on January 1 in Atlanta. And the along with ringing in the New Year, the Bowl is also celebrating an important milestone – 50 years in the making.
Atlanta Public Schools (APS) elementary students will soon experience a whole new way of learning, thanks to an innovative literacy initiative being introduced to the school system this summer. Starting this week, APS teachers will receive training in the Orton-Gillingham approach to literacy—a scientifically proven method that uses instruction in sight, hearing, touch and movement to help students connect language with letters and words. The Institute for Multi-Sensory Education (IMSE) will run the training sessions, where teachers will learn how to incorporate this approach into their daily lessons.
