Keys to Literacy online courses give you the tools to provide effective literacy instruction!

Quality, research-based professional development helps educators make the most of technology tools to support reading and writing instruction and student learning. Keys to Literacy’s online training courses provide foundational knowledge for effectively teaching comprehension, vocabulary, and writing in all subject areas, across all grades.

Each course is organized into modules that include interactive activities, readings, video clips from live training, and “use your content” activities that allow users to generate lessons using their own content curriculum materials.
