Keys to Literacy to Turn 10!
This June marks the beginning of Keys to Literacy's 10th Year Anniversary celebration. Throughout the year we will be sponsoring a variety of events and new products to celebrate the occasion!
New PD Program: Keys to Early Writing
Over a year in the making, we are proud to announce that we have recently launched our newest professional development program. It is a two-day training designed for teachers of grades K-3. The training incorporates the latest research about effective writing instruction for young students and is also highly aligned to Common Core writing and language standards. Check our events calendar
for dates of open training or call us to learn more about bringing this PD to your school!
Keys Supports MTSS Efforts
This year our Key Comprehension Routine program was chosen to be the professional development program for a MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Support) project sponsored by the North Carolina Dept of Education. We have also been working with a number of county districts in NC this past year as they adopt our PD programs to support Tier I and Tier 2 literacy instruction as part of MTSS planning.
This past summer, we published new editions of our Key Comprehension Routine (Grades 4-12) and Keys to Content Writing training books. The new editions include updates related to research on instructional research, connections to state literacy standards, and additional instructional practices and classroom examples. Visit the Keys Store
to order new editions.
