The Exploring Structured Literacy course was designed in response to the 2021 updates to Florida Statute 1012.583 (3)(f), which requires that Florida educators in specific coverage areas participate in a minimum of two college credits, or 40 in-service hours of professional learning related to evidence-based instruction and interventions specifically designed for students with characteristics of dyslexia, including the use of explicit, systematic, and sequential approaches to reading instruction, developing phonological and phonemic awareness, decoding, and implementing multisensory intervention strategies. In order to appropriately meet the literacy needs of all students in the academic environment, this professional learning opportunity emphasizes reading instruction that builds a strong, cumulative, and logical foundation of structured literacy. Components of structured literacy include phonology, sound-symbol correspondences, syllables, morphology, syntax, and semantics.
