Rather than replacing the core basal reading program, LETRS brings deeper knowledge of reading instruction by addressing each component—phoneme awareness; phonics, decoding, spelling, and word study; oral language development; vocabulary; reading fluency; comprehension; and writing. This series training will encompasses the concepts in the following LETRS 2nd Edition modules:

  • Module 1: The Challenge of Learning to Read
  • Module 2: The Speech Sounds of English, Phonetics, Phonology, and Phoneme Awareness
  • Module 3: Spellography for Teachers: How English Spelling Works



Participants will:

  • Build a bridge between research and practice.
  • Utilize knowledge about teaching literacy and language.
  • Analyze and discuss why learning to read is so difficult for many students, how reading develops, and what is happening when the reading process does not progress as expected.
  • Identify and classify phonemes (speech sounds) and discuss the importance of phonological awareness in reading and spelling instruction.
  • Explore the structure and history of English spelling with an emphasis historical layers in English orthography and phoneme-grapheme correspondences.
