Important Session Information:

Registration for this session is open to certified teachers who are currently teaching in a public school district or charter school.

MTA is a comprehensive, integrated language arts program addressing reading decoding and comprehension, spelling and composition, cursive handwriting, and alphabet and dictionary skills. The ungraded curriculum encompasses the structure and science of the English language, and all students begin at the beginning. The goal is to complete the curriculum, as long as students are progressing according to criterion-referenced “Mastery Checks” administered periodically. If exit criteria is based on grade-level achievement alone, permanence of learning is not guaranteed. 

Teachers attending all 9 days of training and who successfully meet all training requirements will receive program materials necessary to implement the program with 1 small group of students. 

Earning a certificate for this course requires participants to attend all training dates, successfully complete all assignments on time and demonstrate mastery through a practicum model lesson or other knowledge checks. Make-up days are not available, so please be sure you are able to attend all dates.
