LETRS Language Essentials for Teaching Teachers of Reading and Spelling, Nationwide

LETRS–Language Essentials for Teaching Teachers of Reading and Spelling Nationwide: LETRS is a program designed to help teachers implement scientific research-based reading instruction. Teachers should understand the language structures they’re teaching, how students learn to read and write, and the best reasons why some children fail to learn. This information and the best instructional strategies are embodied in these 12 standalone, sequential modules. Each component of reading instruction — phonemic awareness, phonics and word study, oral language, vocabulary, reading fluency, comprehension, and writing — is addressed. Dr. Louisa Moats refined the professional development methods used in this program over a lifetime of work with diverse groups of teachers.
