Lexia Extends Grant Deadline
Lexia, part of the Cambium Learning Group brand, has extended the deadline to submit an entry to its inaugural Lexia LETRS® Science of Reading Grant Contest for K-5 teachers in the United States. The contest will offer grants to 120 recipients, providing them with no-cost access to the award-winning Lexia LETRS (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) professional learning. The contest’s entry period will remain open until December 31.
Lexia LETRS professional learning is a two-year literacy-focused course that provides teachers with deep knowledge to be language and literacy experts in the science of reading. Developed by Dr. Louisa Moats and leaders in the field of literacy, LETRS is used by educators in 47 states and teaches the skills needed to master the foundational and fundamentals of reading and writing instruction—phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and written language.
To enter the grant program, participants must create a short video (60 seconds or less) and share on social media with the hashtag #LexiaLETRSGrant that answers the question: “How will Lexia LETRS® help transform your teaching to impact student learning?” For more information on how to enter, visit Lexia LETRS Grant.
A panel of judges will evaluate each entry. Winners will be notified via email around the end of January 2024, and they will have the option of beginning LETRS in March or April of 2024.
Eligibility for the grant program is restricted to educators who do not currently have access to LETRS through existing school, district, or state contracts. Prospective entrants can determine if they are in a state that currently offers Lexia LETRS to educators by visiting Lexia’s state adoptions web page.
