Leading for Literacy Impact

Good news - approximately 90-95% of all K-3 students can achieve literacy skills at or approaching grade level! Bad news - it takes approximately 17 years to turn 14% of original research into practice for the benefit of students. In this course, district and school-level instructional leaders will be provided with the scientifically based knowledge and tools needed to close the research-to-practice gap.

Course includes:

  • 4 sessions with SEEC facilitators (two zoom meetings, two in-person learning days)
  • Ideas and materials for leading future Professional Learning Communities (PLC's)
  • Classroom observation and feedback tool for foundation skill instruction with specific 'look-fors' and red flags
  • Template for school-wide implementation and de-implementation plan
  • Content aligned to the IDA's Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading
  • CEU available for additional cost
