Help for struggling readers

COMPLETE AND SUPPLEMENTAL CURRICULUM CATALOG


What is Verticy Learning? Verticy is a full homeschool solution designed for struggling readers who exhibit the characteristics of languagebased learning differences. It can also be implemented as a supplemental program for reading, writing or math. Either way, Verticy is proven to improve academic confidence in your child and rekindle a love of learning.

Verticy can be easily implemented by: • Homeschooling parents • Tutors and volunteers, during or after school • Schools and reading intervention programs • Educators with or without specialized training Verticy Learning offers: • Free customized placement (page 6) • Complete curriculum for Grades 3–8 (pages 10-15) • L anguage Arts curriculum: Phonics/Spelling, Grammar/Composition and Literature (page 8) • Individual Reading, Writing and Math programs for ages 6 and up (page 16) Verticy Learning combines time-tested, research-based curriculum, lesson manuals, and textbooks with innovative computer-based technology. The Phonics/Spelling program, the heart of Verticy, is based on Orton-Gillingham methodologies and multi-sensory instructional techniques. This means Verticy provides multiple pathways for information to get to the brain.

What is Orton-Gillingham? Orton-Gillingham methodologies, the gold standard of language help for dyslexic learners, were developed by Samuel Torrey Orton, a neuropsychiatrist, and Anna Gillingham, an educator and psychologist. The Orton‑Gillingham approach to reading instruction has been successfully used by schools, special education teachers, and private tutors since the 1930s. This approach engages students through four learning modalities—visual (seeing), auditory (hearing), tactile (touching) and kinesthetic (moving). Verticy uses these strategies particularly in our Phonics/Spelling course to give students the same information in varied ways, offering the brain multiple opportunities to absorb and retain knowledge. 3

Every Student is Unique— So is Every Verticy Course Verticy meets students where they are and moves them toward their academic goals. The time it takes to reach these goals will vary for each student, but students will gain skills that were previously out of reach and progress on their journey toward academic success, becoming independent learners.

Greg’s Program

Mary’s Program

Rafael’s Program

Greg is an 18-year-old who has severe difficulty and frustration with reading and writing. This negatively impacts not only his career goals, but his selfesteem. A friend is tutoring him for one hour, three times a week, using the Phonics/Spelling program. Greg is aware that many of the graphics and activities are geared toward younger students, but he knows that these activities will help him learn to read, and that is his primary goal.

Mary is being homeschooled by her mother. To reduce frustration, Mary works on Phonics/Spelling, Grammar/Composition, and Math for several months and then slowly integrates her other subjects back into her schedule. Focusing on these skills helps Mary become a more independent and enthusiastic learner. The goal is to let Mary “catch-up” with her other subjects once she has experienced success in areas that have caused frustration.

Rafael is a ten-year-old fourth grader who attends public school. He struggles in his language arts class and is using Verticy as an intervention program. Rafael uses the Yellow level of Phonics/Spelling and the Green level of Grammar/ Composition during study hall two days a week and during an afterschool program three days a week.

Specialized Language Arts Instruction PHONICS/SPELLING Verticy students will begin in one of four levels. Lessons are designed to teach students to think through language problems when reading and spelling, rather than guessing. In the Phonics/Spelling and Grammar/ Composition courses, skills are taught in a spiral of learning – basic skills are introduced and revisited as more advanced skills are continuously introduced, creating balanced skill development in all areas. Students continuously practice new skills to ensure retention, automatic retrieval and application. With Verticy, your child is able to comfortably build a solid foundation of skills needed to promote independent reading and writing, while also experiencing grade-level and age-appropriate content. Verticy’s combination of leveled and grade-specific components leads to student success in all subjects. 8

Verticy’s Orange Level course is the first of four levels in our continuum. This level is an appropriate place for beginning readers who need to focus on vowel and consonant sounds. Orange Level students will: • build a solid foundation of phonics and spelling skills • be introduced to the alphabet sequence • begin to understand the sound/syllable relationship • study basic syllable types and division patterns • study spelling rules

In our Yellow Level course, students typically display knowledge of the alphabet and the foundation of consonants and short vowels. Yellow Level students will: • learn and practice dividing words into syllables • learn spelling rules • learn slides and consonant digraphs • learn long vowel sounds • practice with open, closed, silent e and r-controlled syllable types • begin using silent letters, vowel teams and stable final syllables

Research Shows Verticy Works Research shows that increased word recognition improves fluency, which improves reading comprehension. Calvert conducted a study of the Verticy Learning Phonics/Spelling program in Spring 2011 with 100 Sixth Graders at a Baltimore public transformation school. Students who tested in the bottom 50% of the class were split into two groups: the control group and the test group.

Verticy Phonics/Spelling Program Study Improvement in Word Recognition in Less Than 40 Lessons

Control group 2 Grade Levels

1 Grade Level

The test group received supplemental sessions from parents and volunteers using Verticy’s Phonics/Spelling program. After fewer than 40 Verticy lessons, students in the test group demonstrated significant growth in reading comprehension and word recognition. Reading skills increased an average of two grade levels.

The control group received other standard reading interventions.

“My son is 11 and has dyslexia and ADHD. He has been in tutoring since 1st grade (5th grade now), and bounced between public and private school. Finally I gave up on both and found Verticy. We have only been using Verticy for 3 months and I have seen my son thrive, spelling words he could have never spelled before.” – Homeschool parent
