    LETRS provides teachers with the tools and understanding to teach the essential skills needed for literacy. LETRS is NOT a program. Teachers learn the "science of reading" so they are able to apply research into classroom application no matter the curriculum or program used. Instruction is a mixture of 4 face-to-face learning sessions through structured modules and 4 units of online videos including examples of effective classroom instruction. Teachers will be asked to apply the information on chosen students.

    Face-to-Face Sessions Include:
    Session 1 - The Challenge of Learning to Read
    Session 2 - The Speech Sounds of English
    Session 3 - Teaching Beginning Phonics, Word Recognition, & Spelling
    Session 4 - Advanced Decoding, Spelling, & Word Recognition

    A late fee will be applied if you have NOT registered.

    Lunch will be provided. Please notify us of any dietary restrictions at least seven (7) days in advance.
