Reaching All Learners

Recent legislation places an emphasis on student literacy in the early grades. North Dakota Century Code 15.1-21-12.1 states that each teacher who teaches kindergarten through grade three at a school district or nonpublic school and each principal of a public or nonpublic school with kindergarten through grade three shall attend teacher-approved, professional development training that includes topics focused on: 
  1. Phonemic Awareness
  2. Phonics
  3. Fluency
  4. Vocabulary
  5. Comprehension
  6. Systematic, direct instruction for K-3 students to ensure they obtain necessary early reading skills



This course has been developed in partnership with the North Dakota Department of Instruction and the AIM Institute for Learning Research. It is designed for educators who are committed to learning about the connection between reading research, theoretical models of reading, and best practices for language and literacy instruction in the classroom. This course is funded by the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction to assist you in meeting the professional development requirements set forth in Century Code 15.1-21-12.1.


Disregard the event date as this course is open for enrollment year-round.
