Literacy Specialists Supporting Schools Across the Nation to Improve Literacy in America
The Center for Literacy & Learning is excited to announce that we will offer Lit Academy 3.0 to school systems across America through our Professional Development Service. As a Louisiana-based national non-profit focused on literacy, our professional training and support help advance evidence-based best practices for teaching and learning.
You’re invited to learn more about how Lit Academy 3.0 provides training and support for Pre-K through grade 12 educators in schools and across school districts to ensure all students receive high-quality literacy instruction. Our content is focused on the Science of Reading, Interventions, CORE instruction with your curriculum, Data Analysis and so much more.
Lit Academy is a two-day learning event that will provide literacy teams with intensive, collaborative, and application-based workgroup sessions focused on implementing the science of reading literacy plans.
With innovative sessions geared toward evidence-based literacy instruction, collaborative, hands-on learning, and year-long engagement from The Center, educators will have the opportunity to learn ways in which they can apply these strategies to their schools’ curricula.
- Located in Louisiana? We will travel to your school or district. Outside of Louisiana? We will deliver the content virtually.
- Grade Bands from PreK – 12th Grade
- Multiple Sessions
Lit Academy is a collaborative, team-based, hands-on learning experience that brings together members of a school team charged with literacy-focused decision-making and implementation. Literacy leadership teams may consist of the following educators:
- Literacy Coaches
- Mentor Teachers
- Curriculum & Instruction Leads
- ELA Lead Teachers
- Assistant Principals of Curriculum
- Instructional Leaders
- Master Teachers
- SBLC Leads
- Curriculum Specialists
Teams will attend focused sessions that will lend themselves to actionable planning, implementing an effective literacy coach program, family literacy engagement, and applying new knowledge toward building a robust literacy plan. Workgroup sessions will engage participants with data review, curriculum-specific instructional guidance, literacy plan review, and refinement.
As a participant in the 2023 Lit Academy Cohort 3.0, teams will be provided additional year-long engagement support opportunities that are in addition to the in-person 2-day intensive event. The Center will host quarterly virtual support meetings and participants will receive 1-year access to The Center’s PathLMS site to receive Lit Academy resources, training videos, recordings of virtual meetings, and engage in a cohort discussion board.
