DALLAS, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sopris Learning, a provider of results-based education solutions, products, and services that improve school and student performance, announced today that it will host the 2013 LETRS Summit in Austin, Texas, as part of an ongoing partnership with Austin Independent School District (AISD).


"AISD is committed to providing our teachers with the foundational knowledge necessary for teachers to be the experts in their classrooms," says Cynthia Edwards, Administrative Supervisor for RtI-504/Dyslexia, Austin Independent School District. "Our goal is to empower them to best utilize the programs and tools the district provides to improve academic achievement for every student."

The annual LETRS Summit provides two and a half days of interactive workshops and networking opportunities that offer participants the unique opportunity to expand their knowledge of research and literacy, connect instruction to outcome standards, and network with leading national experts including Dr. Louisa Moats, Dr. Linnea Ehri, Dr. David Francis, Dr. Roland Good, Dr. Ruth Kaminski, Dr. Lucy Hart Paulson, Susan Ebbers, M.Ed., Bruce Rosow, M.A., Melody Ilk, M.A., and National LETRS Trainers.

"The difference between LETRS and other professional development in reading is really embodied in the title; LETRS means 'Language Essentials...' because language is the underpinning, the foundation, for learning to read and spell.  Knowledge of language is the foundation of teaching," says Dr. Moats.

The LETRS Summit 2013: The Science Behind Literacy and the Art of Instruction will take place June 26-28 at the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown in Austin. Specific topics for administrators, coaches, and teachers are included in the program, as are targeted sessions focused on teaching English Learners, Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Instruction, and techniques for improving comprehension, vocabulary, phonics, phonology, writing, and more.
