Contribute a Story about Your Team's Learning

National Center for Literacy EducationThe Literacy in Learning Exchange, the website of the National Center for Literacy Education (NCLE), is looking for stories—"Portraits of Change"—about the challenges and successes experienced by educators working together in collaborative learning teams. 

Portraits of Change are intended to foster conversation and deeper learning around NCLE core beliefs:

  • Literacy teaching and learning is everyone’s business—in and out of school, across grades, and across disciplines.
  • Professional learning through collaboration with peers and around topics or questions that strengthen teaching and learning makes a difference.
  • Conditions and structures such as time, resources, and culture are key drivers of successful change.
