LETRS (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling)

ADE’s Exceptional Student Services Section is collaborating with the K-12 Academic Standards Section to provide LETRS training in Arizona. The LETRS (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) course content is strongly aligned to the Arizona Common Core Standards: Foundational Skills (K-5), Reading Standards for Literature and Informational Text (K-5) and Language Standards (K- 5). The LETRS content is designed as a course of study that connects research to practice while using accessible language and interactive exercises. LETRS training provides excellent information for K-5 Teachers and Special Education Teachers K-12.

National LETRS trainers will provide training to Arizona teachers on LETRS modules 1 through 9. LETRS modules are clearly written and chock full of information. Essential teaching concepts are underscored with engaging questions, problems, and activities that lead to real-world applications. Each module builds on the previous modules, includes review, and ends with a quiz that can be used to evaluate participants’ learning.
