Research and Effectiveness
Effective Framework Design
The Literacy Collaborative framework incorporates all of the elements of effective schools to support improved literacy instruction and student achievement through:
- Providing a research-based instructional model that is language-based, student-centered, process-oriented, and outcome-based;
- Creating in-school and in-district leadership through the training and support of school-based literacy leadership teams, administrators, and literacy coaches;
- Establishing long-term site-based development for every member of the school’s literacy faculty; and
- Helping schools monitor the progress of every student through systematized assessment, data collection, and analysis.

Value-Added Effects of Literary Collaborative Professional Development on Student Learning
The Elementary School Journal, Volume III, Number I, reports on a 4-year longitudinal study of the effects of Literacy Collaborative. Results demonstrated increasing improvements in student literacy learning during LC implementation, and the benefits persisted through subsequent summers. Findings warrant a claim of substantial effects on student learning for the LC coaching model.
