Literacy Leadership Network
We are again offering you an opportunity to participate in our Literacy Leadership Network. We meet seven times a year to learn about the latest evidence-based research and best instructional practices in literacy instruction and assessment. In addition, members are kept up-to-date on new state and national initiatives. Members review professional books, materials, and websites, and discuss ways to share the information in our home districts. Over the last several years, fifteen school districts have sent representatives to our full-day workshops.
I would like you to join us. We have been able to lower costs considerably. The cost is only $100.00 per participant for all seven sessions. We ask that districts send two teacher leaders or coaches—one K-5 and one 6-12. Your total cost for the entire year for two people is $200.00 for over 42 hours of workshop time per person.
