Why Teachers Choose the Online Elementary Reading Academy for Professional Learning Based on the Science of Reading

99% of participants in the Online Elementary Reading Academy say the course met or exceeded their expectations. Educators also report substantial growth in understanding the critical components of reading instruction after finishing the course.

But the Online Elementary Reading Academy isn’t just effective at equipping teachers with the knowledge and skills to offer quality reading instruction that helps all students, including English learners and students with dyslexia, become strong readers. It is also:

  • Affordable: The $500 course fee includes seven lesson modules; exemplary course materials, including the acclaimed Teaching Reading Sourcebook; and a library of lesson modeling videos.
  • Collaborative: Course participants are encouraged to interact with their peers and get the chance to work 1:1 with expert course facilitators.
  • Flexible: The course is asynchronous and offered online, so teachers can complete it anytime, anywhere they want over 7-12 weeks.
  • Proven: The course covers the fundamentals of reading assessment and the essential components of reading instruction with clear and explicit models immediately applicable in the classroom and has been approved by ODE to address the following two focus areas: Understanding and Recognizing Dyslexia (URD) and Foundational Skills in Reading (FSR).

The Online Elementary Reading Academy will prepare teachers to address unfinished learning from spring school closures and support all students to become strong readers, including those with word-level reading difficulties like dyslexia. Join us this fall in one of our national courses to restart learning and improve reading.
