Brain studies show that working with patterns builds comprehension and memory.
Teaching underlying patterns and relationships organizes fragmented information into meaningful, memorable parts and wholes. Though often omitted, taught as isolated skills and relegated to writing instruction, grammar and syntax are foundational for building vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension during reading instruction. This presentation shares ways to teach grammar and syntax that are meaningful, orderly, and engaging. It introduces hands-on manipulatives and use of colors and coding and weaves grammar and syntax into language instruction as an integrated whole. How we learn instructs (builds within) our avenues of thought. Language instruction shapes our minds, ideas and culture. Its effects are far-reaching. Whether you are a teacher, student, parent or student of life, you may find Living Language methods not only engaging and effective, but transformative for how we think, orient ourselves and relate.

Donna Marcantonio M.S. Ed. was trained in the late 80’s to teach students with Dyslexia using the Orton-Gillingham method. Over the years, she has taught Language Arts in public and private schools, clinics and private tutoring and expanded this structured, multi-sensory approach to include all aspects of language. Donna currently tutors students in Language Arts, Math and SATI/ACT Prep on line and gives presentations on teaching instruction. She is a published poet, singer-songwriter, essayist and home farmer.
