This one-day overview workshop is designed for educators K-12 who desire to increase their understanding of Structured Literacy™. Structured Literacy™, an umbrella term developed by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA), grounds teachers in deep content knowledge and specific teaching expertise. With a focus on the struggling learner, this workshop explores the content of literacy instruction—phoneme awareness, sound-symbol correspondence, orthography, six-syllable instruction, morphology, syntax, and semantics—as well as the principles of instruction — explicit, systematic, cumulative, and diagnostic –through the latest research, assessment tools, best practices for implementation, and opportunities to rehearse specific instructional methods. The workshop format combines traditional (content-rich discourse) and 21st century (active participation) teaching methods to meet the diverse needs of adult learners.

A partial scholarship for this workshop may be available. Please fill out this form and you will be notified if a scholarship is available.
