The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) recently named Consortium on Reaching Excellence in Education (CORE), a subsidiary of Pivot Learning, as one of the approved providers for research-based effective literacy instructional professional learning throughout the state. CORE will collaborate with district and school leaders to provide job-embedded professional learning based on the science of reading that leads to significant improvement in educator effectiveness.
CORE’s Elementary Reading Academy, based on the nationally recognized Teaching Reading Sourcebook, coupled with coaching covers the content identified in Michigan’s Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy, K‐3. Brain research, linguistics and dyslexia information, and Structured Literacy Practices are also incorporated into ORE’s professional learning services. Working with CORE, educators will gain the knowledge and instructional skills to help all students, even English learners and those with dyslexia, become strong readers.
