Basic Training

Foundations & Frameworks is a research-based and research-supported instructional reading program which is distributed through a 10-day Graduate Level Professional Development Program.


This teacher training is not conducted in a “workshop” style format, but rather an intense graduate level framework that thoroughly equips teachers to become even more effective in their instruction. Only those participants successfully completing training are certified to teach Foundations & Frameworks in his or her classroom.

  • Days 1-3 of training include training in the Architecture of Learning instructional framework. This framework can be used in any area of instruction and is the instructional design used for Foundations & Frameworks.

  • Days 4-10 include training in reading comprehension, small groups, visual tools, vocabulary, assessment, content area reading, beginning reading, and instructional tools.
