Summer 2017 Training Dates
During 6 days of professional development, you will be introduced to a supplementary literacy intervention designed to help teachers provide powerful, daily small-group intervention for struggling readers and writers. Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) is a system for improving the reading and writing achievement of the lowest-achieving children in the early grades. Primary students in LLI participate in 30-minute, intensive lessons five days per week that combine reading, writing, and phonics/word study.
LLI uses a specifically created and sequenced set of original children’s books, leveled A-N. Teachers use planned lessons that enable them to provide highly effective and efficient teaching, resulting in accelerated student progress.
To participate in this training, you must be able to work with at least 1 group of 3 students, 5 days a week, for 18 weeks, as well as attend all 6 days of training.
