About this item
Empower, Enlighten, and Advance
This training in Structured Language Basics (SLB) is a condensed four-day training of our normal 5-day training which provides second and third-grade teachers with a structured, multisensory, scripted curriculum that addresses the needs of a variety of readers, from reading-disabled to gifted. SLB features instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, oral reading fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, grammar, handwriting, and spelling (includes spelling lists). Advanced syllable division and root-and-affix instruction prepares students to confidently attack multisyllabic words. Grammar instruction helps students develop strong sentence writing skills, which eventually lead to strong paragraph composition. Each lesson contains a decodable story for fluency development and assessment. Periodic student assessments occur every 15-20 lessons. Complement SLB with your favorite basal, guided-reading, or authentic literature for a supercharged literacy block.
Teachers who attend Structured Language Basics are able to access our Users of SLB page that is full of helpful instructional videos and online resources.
An Early Bird Discount is available to those who pay by May 7th, 2024. Acceptable forms of payment include cash, check, credit card, and purchase orders.

This training requires you to agree and commit to completing all days of training. You must complete all applicable fields of your user profile prior to registration, or this will delay your screening and approval process.
Participants may terminate their registration by giving Payne Education Center at least one week prior written notice. Even with cancellation, participant agrees to pay, in full, a 10% nonrefundable portion of the registration fee, regardless of when the participant terminates the agreement. There will be a 100% training charge for registered participants who do not cancel their registration and do not attend training (no call, no show). Additionally, trainees who receive scholarship/funding, and do not complete training requirements as outlined, will be asked to repay their scholarship.
This registration may be terminated by Payne Education Center at any time and will give participants advance written notice. Predictably, termination is most likely to happen only if too few teachers register for a training, thus impacting the policies for hosting a training. In the event of a Payne cancellation, all registration fees will be refunded.
