Designing a system That Supports Effective Literacy instruction
FREE workshop for district leaders, school leaders, and instructional coaches in Essex, Union, and Atlantic counties.
District leaders, school leaders, and instructional coaches play a crucial role in designing systems and supports that promote effective literacy instruction.
In this three-hour workshop by Lavinia Group, we’ll guide participants through the essential components of effective reading instruction, and how to bring those components to life consistently across your school buildings.
Through a combination of video clips, observation tools, sample lesson plans, and other research-based resources, leaders will gain a comprehensive understanding of the key components you need to create a strong foundation for literacy instruction across your school. This webinar provides tangible examples of research-aligned practices that leaders can use as a reference to drive instructional improvements.
This workshop will also focus on key criteria for evaluating, selecting, and monitoring high-quality instructional materials and a comprehensive assessment plan to foster strong reading skills.
