Description

The Literacy Leadership Team: Sustaining and Expanding Success provides clear and practical time-proven practices to assure that schools are consistently developing an “informed eye” when developing literacy curriculums and programs. This unique book provides a wealth of information to assist not only the literacy coach as a lead learner, but the entire literacy leadership team to focus on positive change or forward shifts in schools. 

 

In order to influence learning and instruction in a positive manner, this much-awaited book helps literacy leadership team members develop a common language and understanding about literacy processing and adult learners. Enrique and Kathy share advice on how each team member will bring a wealth of personalized knowledge and experiences that they will need to acknowledge and use as a seed for thinking in different directions so that they are better able to support the school as a place of learning for everyone.
