This module is designed for general classroom teachers and specialist teachers (e.g., special educators, reading specialists, ESL/ELL teachers) who work with students in Grades 1-8 and have responsibility for providing some/all of those students' literacy instruction. Explore effective literacy assessment and instruction practices to support students having difficulty taking on literacy learning.
