Content Area Reading and Writing (Read to Succeed course)

elementary student with a stack of subject books

Help prepare your students for long-term success in reading and writing – and earn Read to Succeed (R2S) credit to boot – with this flexible course from PBS Teachers: Vocabulary as a Foundation for Learning.

Although the course is primarily intended for K-3 educators, Vocabulary as a Foundation for Learning, is R2S-approved as a Content Area Reading and Writing (CARW) course for ANY educator!

In the course, you’ll learn how to make word learning a part of everything you do throughout the instructional day, embedding powerful vocabulary instruction into your teaching routines and gaining insight into why this matters so much. You’ll learn how your instructional choices can influence not only how children access curriculum, but how they think about the world around them. View the full syllabus (pdf).

The course earns 60 renewal credits, or, for an additional fee, 3 graduate credits.
