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.
