Kansas LETRS Training Cadre

Kansas TASN LETRS 3rd Edition Facilitator Training

In an effort to build capacity of districts to support early literacy, struggling readers and to ensure teachers have the knowledge to effectively support all students with reading instruction, KSDE TASN is supporting LETRS 3rd Edition Facilitator training on an annual basis in Kansas beginning in June 2020. To participate in this training, staff will first have to complete the online course during the 2019-2020 school year (see suggested timeline below). 

LETRS® (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) is an online course that teaches educators the science of reading and gives them the skills to teach language and literacy to every student, even those with reading challenges like dyslexia. This online professional development course addresses how to teach language and literacy only. It is curriculum agnostic and supports teachers in using locally adopted curriculum more effectively.

Information about online support sessions while you complete the LETRS online professional learning and opportunities for your district to build capacity for continued use can be found on this webpage.
