The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) recently named Consortium on Reaching Excellence in Education (CORE) as one of the approved providers for research-based effective literacy instructional professional learning. CORE will partner with Michigan educators to facilitate significant improvement in educator effectiveness through job-embedded professional learning based on the science of reading.
CORE’s Elementary Reading Academy, based on the nationally recognized Teaching Reading Sourcebook, coupled with coaching covers the content identified in Michigan’s Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy, K‐3. CORE’s professional learning also incorporates brain research, linguistics and dyslexia information, and Structured Literacy Practices. Working with CORE, educators will gain the knowledge and instructional skills to help all students, even English learners and those with dyslexia, become strong readers.
As a provider of research‐based effective literacy professional learning for more than 26 years, CORE is excited to expand their work in Michigan to more schools and districts.

Last month, EdReports.org released reviews of five ELA Foundational Skills programs, evaluating them each based on the reading foundational skills called for, including whether or not the skills apply research-based practices and are presented systematically with explicit instruction.
Linda Diamond, president of CORE, was a reviewer and provided feedback on the development of the rubrics used to evaluate the various curriculum programs and also reviewed the detailed descriptions the reviewers used along with the rubrics. Five programs have been reviewed so far. We encourage you to read the reviews, especially if you’re currently using or considering implementing one of the programs.

Dale Webster, Chief Academic Officer for CORE, will be participating in a webinar series produced by the Center for the Collaborative Classroom.
The two webinars will feature California leaders who are doing the work to ensure that all their students become strong, confident readers. Together we’ll explore common challenges and share guidance and instructional considerations—all based on research. These webinars will particularly address Tier I and Tier II in light of what we know about explicit, systematic phonics instruction.
