Are you responsible for planning professional learning?
While many educators know NCTE as the home of award-winning professional journals, national conferences, and the ReadWriteThink website, you may not know we have also been quietly supporting K–12 schools across the country in building effective learning plans around improving literacy teaching and learning.
Design professional learning plans that fit any budget and timeline
Provide research-based literacy resources and recommend practices across disciplines
Work with your leadership team to evaluate your professional learning efforts and build long-term literacy capacity
Our goal is to build long term capacity in your staff to support effective literacy teaching and learning. Therefore, we offer services such as:
Needs Analysis Services
Using a combination of survey tools, onsite visits, a review of school and district documents, and interviews, we can facilitate conversations onsite that help triangulate these data sources to pinpoint changes in practices that will have the most immediate impact on teaching and learning.
If you have already identified literacy needs, we can provide literacy expertise for full day workshops and institutes, keynotes, breakout sessions, and consulting with leadership teams on implementation of effective collaborative professional learning models.
Supporting Ongoing Collaborations and Year-Long Professional Learning
Starting with an audit of time available for professional learning, we can help you build a plan that supports cohesive ongoing professional learning aligned to district goals.
High Quality Learning Resources
Do you have strong teacher leaders and/or effective collaborative practices already in place? We can provide school-wide, digital access to resources designed specifically to support school learning communities.
All NCTE professional learning resources and services are designed based on the NCTE Principles for Professional Development, valuing sustained learning activities, engagement with both teachers and administrators, and community-based learning.
