LETRS® provides K-12 educators with an in-depth understanding of the science behind teaching literacy and gives them the background and depth of knowledge to teach language and literacy skills to every student. Designed to be the cornerstone of a multiyear, systemic literacy improvement initiative, LETRS® is the most respected comprehensive professional development course for instructors of reading, spelling, and related language skills.
LETRS® (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) for Administrators is a course of study that combines A Principal’s Primer for Raising Reading Achievement with an online component and optional face-to-face training to help instructional leaders create the systems and structures needed to improve overall literacy instruction.
LETRS for Administrators helps literacy leaders:
The research-based course complements LETRS and guides state, district, or building leaders in implementing research-based, multitiered instruction. Administrators are provided specific steps for facilitating change, developing a comprehensive assessment plan, managing resources, assembling a school leadership team, and making data-based decisions.
An overview of all 8 units of LETRS will be provided in this course. Current LETRS educators are finishing units 1-4 this year and will start on units 5-8 next year. This course will allow administrators to preview the content for all units.
DELIVERY: This multi-session series will be delivered over 1 online webinar and 2 face-to-face sessions throughout the year.
CREDIT: Two graduate credits will be available for participants who complete all sessions and required assignments.
