Literacy Tutoring and Intervention to Accelerate Learning


Course overview

Course description:

Now more than ever, opportunity gaps caused by interrupted learning have made proven, research-based solutions a top priority for educators. Research shows while all students can learn to read, only one out of three children are reading proficiently by third grade. Even more so, while educators are the most crucial determinant in student success, only 49% of educational organizations effectively prepare teachers for literacy instruction. The pandemic has only further intensified the gap and shined a light on the need for more individualized student support and instruction.

As school leaders look for solutions that will accelerate learning for all students, many are turning to the science of reading. The Literacy Tutoring and Intervention course provides school teachers and leaders with everything they need to implement science of reading based, intensive, small-group and one-on-one intervention for students who need support in reading.

From diagnosing students and creating groups, to structures for transformative instruction, to high-impact student coaching, to data analysis, this comprehensive course leaves educators ready to close instructional gaps that exist. The course provides dozens of science of reading tutoring and intervention resources for teachers so they can make these practices come alive in their classrooms.
