Literacy Leadership Institute (Follow Up 2; Option 2)
School leaders face many demands each day to ensure that all students on their campus are growing in their capacity to become competent readers. Effective literacy leaders believe that all students can learn to read critically, have deep content knowledge about literacy instruction, understand how reading skills develop, recognize the need for explicit, systematic teaching of the key components of reading instruction, and build trust with coaches and teachers.
Participants in the Neuhaus Literacy Leadership Institute will develop an understanding of the key elements of reading instruction, how beginning skills develop, and how to enhance teachers’ use of effective teaching strategies within a Structured Literacy instructional routine. The course includes two days of training as well as two small group follow-up sessions.
