Literacy Leaders: What Do You Need to Do?
RECOGNIZE FEATURES OF EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTIONAL DELIVERY
When leaders prioritize spending time in classrooms, they recognize that how reading instruction is delivered is just as important as what is delivered.
MAKE EVIDENCE-BASED LITERACY INSTRUCTION A SCHOOLWIDE PRIORITY
Schools with a clear vision and mission for improved reading achievement demonstrate an understanding of evidence, and prioritize the adoption, and implementation of evidence-based literacy practices among all staff.
COLLECT INFORMATION & PROVIDE FEEDBACK ON THE CONTENT AND DELIVERY OF LITERACY INSTRUCTION
Classroom walkthroughs that are focused on lesson quality and integrity to evidence-based practices will give leaders valuable information about what's working --or not working-- in their school.
