The Literacy Matrix is a professional development tool for educators to learn foundational knowledge and skills for effective reading instruction. Powered by our custom-built Learning Management System, Flamingo Learning, and offered online for ease of access, each concept presented in the Matrix includes foundational content and actionable strategies in the areas of assessment, instruction, and intervention. Educators are given the opportunity to apply research-based strategies for each competency and demonstrate evidence of their learning for review and feedback in practicum modules.

 Based on the science of reading, this systematic training prepares teachers to:

  1. effectively teach reading,
  2. diagnose reading issues, and
  3. intervene appropriately using research-based strategies.

The Flamingo Literacy Matrix is a route to the Florida Reading Endorsement and South Carolina Read to Succeed that gives teachers:

  • Opportunities to apply their learning in the classroom and receive personalized feedback
  • Live, tailored guidance and support from a Navigator with expertise in reading instruction
  • Customized learning pathways to fulfill individual needs  
  • A space to collaborate and share resources through the online Flamingo Learning platform
