Build instructional leadership to improve students’ literacy skills
Leading the change
For at least twenty years, there has been continued pressure to change the way we teach reading, one that supports the science of reading. However, transforming schools to a new way of teaching reading is not easy. Teachers are called upon to embrace extensive sets of learning objectives, build new lesson plans, increase their repertoire of effective teaching strategies, assess students in new ways, and support students with special needs in inclusive classrooms.
Transform your school
Leading the change will require superintendents and principals to ensure all stakeholders are aligned and fully committed to improving students’ literacy skills. It requires the concerted effort of school leaders to prioritize student learning, strengthen teachers’ instructional skills, and establish a data-informed culture.
Seize the opportunity – Leadership Academy
The Learning Bar’s Leadership Academy is a unique opportunity for superintendents and principals to engage in a year-long professional development program. They will learn from and be mentored by Canada’s prominent experts in leadership, the science of reading, classroom instruction, and assessment.
