Since 2013, the Arizona Department of Education has offered a five-day training called Teaching Reading Effectively (TRE).
Beginning in early 2021, the English Language Arts team will launch a new online course called Reading Fundamentals. This course supports the Move On When Reading (MOWR) legislation (ARS 15-701 & ARS 15-704) and is intended for K-3 general education teachers, K-8 special education teachers, reading interventionists, literacy coaches, and school leaders to improve educators pedagogy and classroom instruction.
All Reading Fundamentals trainings are scheduled through the Move on When Reading Team via the ADE Event Management System (EMS). All participants must have an ADEConnect account to register.

Payment is due at the time of registration and ADE cannot accept early payment to reserve a space.
Teaching Reading Effectively: Enrichment for Teachers of English Learners is a 5-day series of virtual trainings for K-3 educators who have completed ADE’s original Teaching Reading Effectively (TRE) course.
This continuation of learning from the TRE course will provide educators with a deeper understanding of language acquisition and effective instructional practices for developing fluent readers while simultaneously building their language skills as they relate to Arizona’s Language Development Approach (AZ LDA). All sessions will explicitly connect the four principles for promoting student agency in English learners to the five features of effective reading instruction.
