Online Professional Development

While Reading Educator provide a glance at research-based strategies and links for more self-study, we suggest choosing more in-depth courses from Beacon Educator for a closer look at reading research. Beaconís Reading Courses were developed around Florida's Reading Endorsement Criteria for educators seeking this endorsement. Teachers from outside of Florida will find them equally useful. The Classroom Practices Courses support content area teachers as they help struggling readers in their classrooms.
