NCLE and the New Literacy in Learning Exchange
NCTE, in active collaboration with 28 of the leading organizations devoted to building capacity in schools, has created the new National Center for Literacy Education (NCLE) and invites you to launch NCLE by registering to use the new Literacy in Learning Exchange. Through the Exchange, a free, interactive site designed to bring together useful resources and build school team capacity to engage and inspire literacy learners, you'll get to see -- and share -- evidence, including video and audio clips, of school and teacher practices and student learning in our nation's classrooms, schools, and informal learning settings.

Kent Williamson, director of the National Center for Literacy Education and executive director of NCTE, discusses NCLE's work to improve student learning and to support teachers in meeting the demands of teaching in the twenty-first century.
