Breakout Session 5.5: Building a Framework for Literacy Success: One School's Journey
In this session you will learn about one school’s journey to literacy success. In 2018 we made the intentional decision to change how we grow readers in our school. We wanted to build a culture of literacy and a mindset for teacher and student growth and we wanted our teachers to WANT to change their practice. Join us as we share that framework for change. We’ll share with you resources we used for critical conversations on literacy instruction that helped drive our teachers to desire change.
In addition, we'll share how we built a culture of literacy in our building with our community becoming active participants in our journey. You will also learn how we used our MTSS framework to identify and fill learning gaps, drive decisions about core curriculum needs and promote a collaborative culture where ALL staff are responsible for the success of ALL students.
Finally, see the results. See where we started and where we are today. Learn how the growth is spreading in our district as Principal Fuller has transitioned to another Elementary School where she is in the process of enacting change and already seeing results.
