LETRS: This course provides the deep foundational knowledge necessary to understand how students learn to read, write, and spell—and why some of them struggle. LETRS provides educators with a core understanding of language structure and helps them gain in-depth instructional information to complement their teaching practices. Rather than replacing the core basal reading program, LETRS brings deeper knowledge of reading instruction by addressing each component (see units below) as well as the foundational concepts that link them.
