Keys to Literacy offers a train-the-trainer model for large districts, teacher training centers, and state education agencies that would like to train teachers using in-house literacy trainers. Using this model, Keys to Literacy trains literacy specialists to become Level I licensed trainers who are licensed and trained to deliver the following in-house professional development:

  • Initial teacher training using a blend of face-to-face workshops and our online courses. Use of the online course ensures fidelity of training content for teachers.There is a per teacher charge that covers the cost of the training book and online registration fee.
  • Ongoing peer coaching to teachers who have been trained.
  • Administrator workshops that provide an overview of what teachers are learning and suggestions for supporting school-wide implementation.

Level I trainers are licensed to deliver initial teacher training, administrator training, and follow-up coaching to teachers. Building-based peer coaches are licensed to provide peer coaching to teachers.
