Event Information

This is the registration for the 4 day series. Dates are listed below.

LETRS addresses the structures of English language, the cognitive processes of learning to read, and the teaching practices proven to be most effective in preventing and remediating reading difficulties, including dyslexia. No other professional development is as comprehensive in addressing the five essential components of effective reading instruction, plus writing, with a focus on translating research to classroom application. LETRS is relevant and applicable, regardless of the literacy programs already in use in your school.

Research shows 95 percent of all first graders can be taught how to read. The harsh reality is that approximately 31% of fourth graders cannot read at even “basic” levels. Of those who cannot, most won’t read without proper instruction. Students need teachers who know how to teach the foundational skills of reading.

Now is the time to bridge professional development to in-classroom success with the only literacy and language course of study backed by more than 30 years of evidence-based scientific research, and more than a decade of proven success.

Day 1-December 10, 2019- Letrs 3rd Edition - The Challenge of Learning to Read - Face-to-face - Series
