Early Literacy Essentials Training
Are you a literacy coach, Pre-K-3 teacher or an administrator?
These MDE-approved courses help address our state’s most pressing literacy issues, including Michigan’s ranking as 41st among U.S. states in 4th-grade reading scores and the fact that less than 50 percent of Michigan 3rd graders are proficient readers.
Research suggests that the practices overviewed in these courses will have a positive impact on literacy development. We believe that the use of these practices in every classroom every day could make a measurable positive difference in the State’s literacy achievement.
