LETRS Foundations is a teacher's first step in gaining essential knowledge about effective teaching of reading.
LETRS Foundations introduces educators to the concepts and practices supported by reading science. It also prepares teachers for the more rigorous, in-depth modules of the overall LETRS professional development program.
Crafted for the adult learner, this module addresses the differences between good and poor readers; aspects of language that are important for literacy; the components of effective instruction; principles of systematic, explicit instruction in each component; and instructional activities that can support the implementation of any comprehensive core program.
LETRS Foundations is full of engaging activities, exercises for practice and review, and explicit connections to the classroom. Selected videos from Teaching Reading Essentials reinforce and support the lessons in the program.
