Answering the questions l.jpg
Answering the questions: INSTRUCTION

  • Developing great leadership – WHO?

Developing great leadership l.jpg
DEVELOPING GREAT LEADERSHIP INSTRUCTION

  • Do form a strong team of interested staff

  • Do give yourselves time – it won’t happen in one year

  • Don’t expect things to go perfectly – they won’t!


Using lexiles l.jpg
USING LEXILES INSTRUCTION

  • Using lexile data gives staff helps with the WHY - the argument “it’s not my job to teach reading” seems rather petty when a student with a 400L is facing a textbook of 1300L

  • It’s up to the literacy leadership team to help staff understand HOW to use lexiles to differentiate instruction
