Webinar Description:

This webinar offers simple activities to support mathematical reasoning at several levels of instruction. Math is a part of our daily lives and students can begin to see that through common practices we all take for granted: cooking, telling time, construction, purchasing food. Learn how to involve your students in activities which will help build the “math muscle.”

A nationally certified Academic Language Therapist and former classroom/demonstration teacher, Marilyn Zecher, M.A., CALT is a specialist in applying multisensory Orton-Gillingham based strategies to a variety of content areas. She is most known for her work in developing an Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching multisensory mathematics which emphasizes the importance of instructional language paired with explicit instruction in mathematical concepts. Her work encompasses foundation skills to algebra and geometry and can be applied to any curriculum. The approach aligns with the Common Core and other State Standards, the neuroscience of mathematics learning and the recommendations of the What Works Clearinghouse and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Her graduate level courses are offered on site and via distance learning both nationally and internationally. She is a frequent presenter at national and regional conferences (IDA, LDA, NCTM) and she trains nationally for The Atlantic Seaboard Dyslexia Education Center in Rockville MD. It also hosts her Multisensory Math 1 and Multisensory Math 2 courses for educators, tutors and parents. Her other specialties include study skills, handwriting remediation, incorporating structured literacy in the secondary ELA classroom and written language for students with dyslexia and related learning challenges. Samples of her workshops are available on her private video learning channel:
