Do you want to learn more about these “hot topics” in literacy education today and have an opportunity to discuss them with fellow teachers? Then check out the Kentucky Reading Project (KRP), a yearlong graduate-level course focused on research-based literacy instruction! Teachers in grades K-5 may participate in KRP.

You will receive a stipend, professional resources, and 3 hours of graduate credit upon completion of the course in May 2017. University literacy faculty at each of the eight state universities provide instruction at various sites across the state. The National Center for Families Learning www.familieslearning.org provides one day of training during the course.

This initiative is sponsored by the Collaborative Center for Literacy Development (CCLD). Since the program began in 1999, KRP has trained approximately 3,300 teachers throughout the state.

You may also contact the KRP Director, Cary Pappas, at cary.pappas@uky.edu or 859-257-6118 for questions or additional information.

Participation in KRP involves no cost to the teacher, school, or district.
