As we know, teachers matter more to student achievement than any other aspect of schooling. LETRS® is a professional development course that supports teachers as they bridge research into practice and is applicable to any classroom regardless of the literacy program in use. This professional development opportunity provides educators with the background, depth of knowledge, and tools to teach language and literacy skills to every student that enters their classroom.

This year we will be offering Volume 2: Units 4-8 which focuses on language comprehension. The units include The Mighty Word: Oral Language and Vocabulary, Digging for Meaning: Understanding Reading Comprehension, Text-Driven Comprehension Instruction, and The Reading-Writing Connection.

We understand the need for alternative ways to engage in professional learning and our Volume 2 2023-24 cohort will engage in asynchronous online learning, classroom application, and 8 synchronous 1.5-hour professional development sessions offered during the evening. Materials will be shipped to each participant's address of choice prior to the start of the course.

Intended Audience: K-2 Classroom Teachers, Reading Specialists, Special Education Teachers, ESL Teachers

Educator's Book Club 2023
This is a blended course with both synchronous and asynchronous learning components.


The purpose of this group is to:

-Develop a community of readers and build relationships across the region

-Increase exposure to newer, diverse and inclusive books

-Evaluate and provide feedback on texts for middle grade and middle school levels

-Curate a list of resources for district/school/classroom curriculum and instruction.


The book list was created in partnership with MCIU, local school librarians and teachers. Participants are responsible for acquiring the required three books. Required texts include:

The expectation is that participants will come to the meet-ups having read their book and professional short text ready to discuss the texts and provide feedback using a protocol. In the virtual meet-up, participants will rotate through breakout sessions with colleagues. A protocol will be used to support the conversation and drive feedback on each text. A facilitator will be in breakout rooms for support.


The group is open to all school educators. This group is committed to offering restorative and inclusive curriculum and instruction resources and working toward healing our historically marginalized communities.
