Session Dates

Thursday April 07, 2011 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Closed

The LETRS modules teach teachers the meaning of scientific findings about learning to read and reading instruction. The modules address each component of reading instruction - phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, spelling, and word study; oral language development; vocabulary; reading fluency; comprehension; and writing - and the foundational concepts that link these components. The characteristics and the needs of second language learners (ELL), dialect speakers, and students with other learning differences are addressed throughout the modules. Instruction in assessment and evaluation of student performance will be embedded in the topical modules. The format of instruction allows for deep learning and reflection beyond the brief "once over" treatment the topics are typically given. Modules provide material for each teacher-participant and will be delivered by Pennsylvania-LETRS Certified Professional Developers at the state, district, and building level.

 

The Pennsylvania-LETRS professional development series is not a program and is not intended to replace reading-based programs or the school’s current materials for teaching reading, but to make their implementation more effective, and to help teachers overcome any gaps in their instruction or materials. The modules will selectively incorporate and recommend the use of readings, videos, and other media resources.

 

LETRS is similar to a course in college that is used to build the teacher’s knowledge. Again, it is not a student program.

 

All participants are required to take Module 1 prior to participation in Modules 2 through 12.
