Literacy Collaborative is a comprehensive school reform project designed to improve the reading, writing, and language skills of elementary and middle level children.
A cornerstone of our project is dynamic, long-term professional development. We train school-based literacy coaches in research-based methods and provide them with ongoing professional development as they continually implement these approaches in their own classrooms, and we support them as they provide on-site training for the teachers in their schools.
- Collective Ownership of Student Outcomes
- Commitment to Research-Based Instructional Practices
- Utilize Data-Driven Teaching and Decision-Making
- Investment in Building Evidence-Based Professional Capacity
The Vision, Mission, and Four Pillars are based on research of effective practice and are essential for assuring quality implementation of the Literacy Collaborative.
