Component #2 - Professional Development in Reading

  • District educators are provided with professional development in the area of reading instruction. Alaska DEED has provided opportunities for teachers to take LETRS®, a two-year intensive training through Lexia, or Keys to Literacy, both of which meet the State's requirements for teachers to earn their reading endorsement through training based on the science of reading. The Teaching and Learning department provides additional professional development in the delivery of new materials, curriculum, assessments, interventions, and best teaching practices through a variety of professional learning opportunities.
