Working Together Toward Achievement
Cultivate a Culture of Learning at the Literacy First Leadership Institute
The Literacy First Leadership Institute, held annually in July, provides an opportunity for school leaders from Literacy First schools nationwide to come together to study, interact and learn. Each year, a nationally recognized speaker provides both a keynote address and small group sessions targeted to elementary and secondary educators. Role-alike sessions allow time for schools to gather in small groups to share successes and ideas for addressing challenges. Breakout sessions targeted towards the latest research and how to successfully implement that research are conducted by Literacy First consultants. All sessions throughout the conference are interactive and designed purposefully to assist schools in implementing research-based best practices.
