Literacy for LeadersZOOM ~ LINKS WILL BE MAILED CLOSER TO TRAINING
Literacy Leadership Matters! Why? 1. School leadership directly impacts student achievement. 2. School leaders improve teaching and learning through promoting staff motivation, commitment, and a positive school culture. 3. School leaders play a critical role in supporting the literacy needs of all students, including those with or at risk for literacy-related disabilities, by designing and evaluating effective school-wide reading plans within multi-tiered systems of support. 4. School leaders actively support implementation of evidence based practices by providing access to high quality professional development and coaching/feedback opportunities. Join Erin Hamilton, from BLaST IU17, and State Lead Consultant for Literacy, Dr. Pam Kastner, as we take a deep dive into the research around foundational reading and what leadership needs to know to create successful teaching and learning teams.

Teaching Deliberate Analysis is designed to provide a close read on Text-Dependent Analysis through an instructional lens, rather than a focus on assessment. This professional development offering will take the form of a professional learning network for administrators, curriculum coordinators and teacher leaders (grades K-8) who are willing to collaborate in round table discussions and dive deeper with text-dependent analysis. Participants will gain a deep understanding of learning progressions and replacement units in order to monitor student growth and differentiate classroom instruction. It is suggested that participants previously have attended Teaching Deliberate Analysis in order to participate in A League of Learners. The training consists of two face-to-face workshops with one follow-up virtual support session provided at no additional cost. This virtual support session will be scheduled at the request of the participant. Participants must register for both face-to-face sessions to attend. Training materials are research-based and created and shared by Dr. Jeri Thompson from the Center for Assessment in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
