A three-year professional development coaching and leadership training for grades Pre-K to 12, the Literacy First transformation framework:
- Creates a literacy-rich culture that motivates and engages students in their own learning
- Develops a student-centered approach to classroom instruction and classroom management that pinpoints and addresses specific skill gaps to ensure increased student achievement
- Establishes strong relationships among PD consultants, teachers, and administrators within each school
Literacy First is a data-drive process with a proven record of improving student-reading achievement by building teachers’ instructional capacity in the area of literacy and knowledge of research-based best practices.
