Professional learning tailored to Minnesota’s educational priorities
CORE Learning’s Online Language & Literacy Academy (OL&LA) is approved by the Minnesota Department of Education as an authorized professional development program in compliance with the Minnesota READ Act. Beginning July 1, 2024, Minnesota districts and charter schools are required to provide evidence-based reading instruction training to teachers and instructional support staff responsible for teaching reading.
OL&LA is an asynchronous online course that gives Minnesota’s educators the tools they need to unlock the full potential of every student. OL&LA personalizes professional learning for literacy by integrating evidence-based reading instruction, second-language acquisition research, and CORE’s nationally acclaimed Teaching Reading Sourcebook. This Structured Literacy course is specifically tailored for educators in language-diverse classrooms that include Multilingual Learners, English variety speakers, and students with dyslexia.
