about evidence-based reading strategies. The content includes instruction based on
the principles of reading (phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and
comprehension). This session will include interactive lessons, guided interventions,
and seat work that will prepare the participant to effectively implement reading practices
within their classrooms. In addition, based on the level of completion and proficiency,
the participant will earn a certificate as RRtCP trained.
