LETRS is an ideal follow-up professional learning to Teaching Reading Effectively!


Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling (LETRS) is an opportunity for intensive professional development that increases teacher knowledge of literacy. Participants are provided with comprehensive and practical knowledge of how children learn to read, write, and spell. Teachers and administrators can use this knowledge to improve instruction and implement evidence-based literacy interventions.
  • Module 1 - The Challenge of Learning to Read: Explores the reasons why many students have reading difficulties and explains how children learn to read.
  • Module 2 - The Speech Sounds of English: Phonetics, Phonology, and Phoneme Awareness: Introduces phonemes (speech sounds) and discusses the importance of phonological awareness in reading and spelling instruction.
  • Module 3 - Spellography for Teachers: How English Spelling Works: Explores the structure and history of English spelling from several angles: phoneme-grapheme correspondence, letter patterns within words, syllables, meaningful word parts (morphemes), and historical layers in the orthography
