Tier 1 is widely considered the start of literacy instruction. Fundamentally, Tier 1 is general instruction for all students and is designed to provide all students access to grade-level curriculum. The CEC Tier 1 Literacy Institute is designed to provide Special and General educators with the most current research and proven strategies to:
Increase student engagement
Provide explicit Tier 1 instruction
Showcase effective implementation of those strategies.
Further, the program focuses on this critical content for educators working with elementary or middle/secondary students. Six national literacy experts will provide dynamic sessions, facilitate small group discussions with attendees, and answer specific questions to help educators address their individual current challenges.
