LFER trains educators to teach pre-literacy and communication development in order to build academic and social success.
Previously known as the Vocabulary Improvement Project (VIP), LFER is a preschool curriculum that is delivered via professional development workshops and classroom observations. LFER trains educators to teach pre-literacy and communication development in order to build academic and social success.
LFER is an 8-10 week hands-on program, where LEAP staff first observe educators then tailor the interactive program to meet their specific needs. LEAP staff model structured book readings and other activities in order to engage teachers so that they can learn to utilize the same language techniques on their own. Teachers are equipped with engaging activities, self-evaluation tools, and relevant pre-literacy research after participating in LFER. Engaging with the LFER curriculum stresses the importance of providing access to the language of school to students from a young age.
