  • Language! Training
    EC teachers from Burke and Catawba counties came together for two days of training on Language!, a research based direct instruction reading program for struggling readers, supported by the North Carolina State Improvement Project (NCSIP).  Participants learned about the six essential steps that are part of this comprehensive literacy curriculum.  Language! focuses on phonemic awareness and phonics, word recognition and spelling, vocabulary and morphology, grammar, listening and reading comprehension, and speaking and writing skills.  BCPS appreciates your dedication to providing high quality instruction to those that need it most.
