These modules are for everyone — from leaders to classroom teachers — to use to support development of a deeper understanding of the Literacy Essentials.
These are FREE resources. The components of the modules include: slides, narration, video clips of literacy researchers, and classroom videos showing each Literacy Essential practice in action in Michigan classrooms. We recommend that educators go through the modules with other educators to
foster deeper learning and understanding of the practices. For example, the modules could be a focus in a Professional Learning Community or Study Group. Your ISD and District Literacy coaches may be able to facilitate your work with these materials.
Online training for teachers in prekindergarten, grades K-3, and literacy coaches.
