Structured Literacy is an approach to reading instruction that applies the science of reading to classroom practice. Participants will learn the principles of Structured Literacy, including ways to be explicit, systematic, cumulative, diagnostic, and responsive (i.e. the how). This asynchronous session will focus on the components identified as necessary for reading proficiency (i.e. the what), the research evidence (i.e. the why), and the application of Structured Literacy (i.e. the how). By implementing the components, principles, and instructional practices, administrators and educators are assured that all students will receive the multifaceted literacy instruction they need for reading and academic success.
The asynchronous content will be sent to registered participants the day of the session. Participants will have from April 1st to April 30th to complete all requirements to earn session credit.
Welcome! This self-paced course is designed to explore Structured Literacy. This is an introductory course that will provide a basic understanding. For more or additional information on any of the topics, please contact the course facilitator. Throughout the three lessons, participants will engage in readings, videos, reflections, and multiple quiz-type activities that must be completed to finish the course and to receive CTLE credit.
