Leading for Literacy: Taking a Deep Dive into Professional Development Structures
In the seventh installment of the Lead for Literacy series, join Ursula Hill, Ed.D., and Jennifer Pierce, Ph.D. from the Lead for Literacy Center as they discuss critical components of high-quality professional development for effective school-wide reading programs, key considerations for job-embedded learning and coaching, and effective collaboration structures for professional learning. Participants will then have the opportunity to develop a well-articulated professional development plan that incorporates key actions for planning, delivering, and evaluating professional development using data sources. The plan will also guide prioritization of needs and goals, identification of resources, and the consideration of funding streams to provide differentiated new knowledge to support teachers and improve student learning and behavior outcomes.
