Staying Sharp & Diving Deeper

Sustaining Slingerland Skills classes are follow-up classes intended for those who have completed at least the Introductory Comprehensive class. Specific classes may be appropriate for those who have taken a Slingerland short class based on a related topic. Each class will focus on a particular aspect of the Slingerland® Approach, the Slingerland lesson plan, structured literacy, and/or the science of reading. Follow-up classes may include lecture, video presentations, discussion, and question-and-answer. 

Classes are held virtually to offer this opportunity to the widest audience possible.


Each of these three-hour followup classes is approved by IMSLEC for three hours of CEU credit

for those seeking recertification as a Certified Slingerland Teacher (CST) or Certified Slingerland Instructor of Teachers (CSIT).
