IMSE, a Southfield-based provider of Structured Literacy Professional Development and Classroom Programs, has expanded its line of digital reading materials to further support primary and secondary school teachers that have had to adapt to a blend of remote and in-person instruction.
The new digital materials include a mix of customizable fluency Google slide bundles that focus on the elements of reading literacy, such as morphology, phonological awareness, and dictation. The products can be used during remote instruction over video call, and in the classroom on an interactive whiteboard, computer, laptop, or tablet.
“The past year turned teachers’ whole worlds upside down, requiring them to make radical shifts in instruction to ensure they could still reach their students and keep them engaged and learning,” says Jeanne Jeup, co-founder of IMSE.
“We have designed our digital products to be engaging, easy to use, and require minimal prep so that teachers have all of the tools they need at their fingertips to implement teaching the core elements of literacy, whether they are instructing students at home, in the classroom, or in a hybrid setting.”
The new digital materials include:
- Customizable K-2 Slide Bundle
- K-2 Grade Orton Gillingham Fluency Slide Bundle
- Orton-Gillingham Printable Classroom Activity Bundle — Grades K-2
- Customizable Morphology Slide Bundle — Latin and Greek Bases
- Customizable Prefix and Suffix Slide Bundle

According to the Center for American Progress, by March 25, 2020, all public schools in the U.S. were closed in response to the rising threat of the corona virus. As of May 3, 2021, 46 percent of U.S. schools still were using hybrid instruction and 53 percent were fully open.
All IMSE digital products can be used for students in the general education setting, intervention setting, or home-school setting.
IMSE Structured Literacy Professional Development trains educators to teach reading with programs based on the Science of Reading research that incorporates the best of Orton-Gillingham and all five pillars of literacy. Then, using IMSE Structured Literacy Classroom Programs, students are taught how to read and write as well as why words are spelled a certain way.
