Practical suggestions and guidance for helping school district literacy leaders achieve growth and development in themselves, their students, the school culture, and in the profession in general.

An invaluable tool for current and aspiring literacy leaders, this resource presents clear guidelines for fostering collaboration among colleagues, improving teacher effectiveness by involving teachers as learners, and engaging teachers in planning for their own growth and development. Included are contributions from classroom teachers across grade levels, literacy coaches and reading specialists working in school districts, representatives from outside agencies, teacher educators, administrators, and parents in both urban and rural school settings. Their experiences, coupled with the examples that the authors provide from their work with teachers, bring the ideas to life for readers. To further the connection between the ideas and real life, the authors include interviews with an elementary education and literacy leader, a secondary education and high school literacy leader, and a literacy leadership team, all speaking out on the issues involved in effective literacy leadership. Each chapter also includes Common Core State Standards Connections, Response to Intervention Connections, and discussions of how ethical literacy leaders face and solve problems.
