Fundations Level 1 Workshop


The Fundations Level 1 Workshop provides the practice and guidance needed to effectively begin teaching the Fundations Level 1 curriculum in a Tier 1 setting.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the course, participants are able to:

  • Grasp the background knowledge and understand the research base supporting the why and how of Fundations instruction.

  • Understand the principles of instruction: explicit, sequential, and cumulative instruction that engages multiple learning modalities with multisensory instruction, repetition, and immediate, specific feedback.
  • Prepare a daily Level 1 learning plan and practice lesson activity procedures.
