Regional Literacy Training for K-3 Teachers (LETRS) - Phase 1

Regional Literacy Training for K-3 Teachers (LETRS) - Phase 1

MDE has contracted with Cambium Education to deliver the Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling (LETRS) training to teachers who serve Kindergarten through 3rd grade students.  This training focuses on instructional approaches that address core components of reading instruction.  Additionally, this training addresses reasons why many students have reading difficulties and offer case studies to model effective instruction.  The training will be offered in two phases.  Each phase will consist of a hybrid model of online and face-to-face sessions that allows for self-paced learning of content.  For each phase teachers must complete an online component prior to attending face-to-face training.

You must complete the online portion of the training before you are eligible to receive credit for the course.

You will be provided approximately an hour to have lunch with your training colleagues on your own.  Information on convenient local eateries will be provided at the training.
