A community of practice is a group of people who share a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. Are you a Principal or Assistant Principal committed to turning your classrooms into rich reading and writing environments? Have you been wondering 'How can I provide my teachers with the support they deserve to effectively teach reading and writing?' “What are the essential look fors in literacy?” Join your principal colleagues in a networking opportunity that will explore sharing and answering questions like these. Using the book by Lucy Calkins & Laurie Pessah, The Principal’s Guide to Leadership in the Teaching of Writing, as well as other leading literacy resources, and the experience within our group we will learn best practices in leading the important school reform of teaching literacy.
