Essential Practices in the Virtual Classroom K-3

The LISD Literacy Team is pleased to offer several professional learning opportunities to assist K-3 teachers, reading specialists, and coaches in designing quality instruction that enacts the Essential Instructional Practices remotely.

Each session will focus on one Essential Instructional Practice, offering resources, examples, and collaborative time for participants to engage in the work. Each session will be geared toward K-3 teachers, reading specialists, and coaches and will be facilitated by Amanda Morris and Ruth Benge.

To learn more and utilize these resources, follow this link to the flyer that provides more information for how to watch the videos and how to receive SCECH credits for each session.

The Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy

Early Literacy Essentials Logo

#MichiganLiteracy - Every Child, Every Classroom, Every Day!

The purpose of the Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy documents is to increase Michigan’s capacity to improve children’s literacy by identifying a small set of research supported literacy instructional practices that could be a focus of professional development throughout the state. The focus of the document is on classroom practices, rather than on school- or systems-level practices (which will be addressed in a future document).
