The Academy of Foundational Literacy is a comprehensive, curriculum-neutral training for PK-3 teachers and all PK-12 interventionists who work with struggling readers. This course is designed to empower primary and intervention teachers to make informed instructional decisions about evidence-aligned early literacy practices.

Each session will build a teacher’s capacity to:

  • Develop a knowledge base that empowers them to make informed assessment and instructional decisions
  • Understand the progression of literacy skills that lead to grade-level proficiency
  • Design high-impact, data-informed, differentiated lessons to meet the needs of all learners
