Literacy Essentials - CESA 9

CESA 9
Kris Peeters's insight:

The Literacy Essentials Workshops were developed to help increase student literacy achievement and provide consistency in instruction within schools and districts.  The content of the Literacy Essentials Workshops is based on the five components of reading as defined by the National Reading Panel.  Both the National Reading Panel and the Read to Lead Task Force recommend teachers learn evidence-based results-oriented strategies in the areas of:  phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.  The Literacy Essentials Workshops incorporate the best of comprehensive literacy, brain-based learning, data to inform teaching, current research on best practices in teaching and alignment with the Common Core Standards.  The Literacy Essentials Workshops are designed to give teachers both "the why and the how" with an emphasis on practical application.

Title I interventions for school reform will be discussed throughout each workshop.
