Share Your Experiences on Literacy Standards Implementation
Participate in the 2015 NCLE survey which focuses on literacy standards implementation and collaborative professional learning. The deadline for submission is Friday, May 29. The survey is designed to capture how the work on new literacy standards is currently taken up in schools across the country and builds on findings from studies done the previous two years. The goal is to give educators, parents, policymakers, and other key decision makers a clear picture of what literacy standards implementation means for teaching and learning in every discipline. Survey results will be shared this fall. Participants can elect to have their names entered into a drawing for a $500 Amazon gift card.
