Reading Leadership Institute
A small number of spaces are still available for the 2013-14 Reading Leadership Institute (RLI) directed by Donna Ogle, Camille Blachowicz, Debra Gurvitz and Sophie Degener of NLU. The purpose of the Reading Leadership Institute is to assist in the development and support of a network of school-based leaders in reading and language education. The philosophy of the institute centers on professional empowerment through the collaborative development of knowledge and leadership skills.
The Reading Leadership Institute participants form a leadership network that can provide staff development support and consultation to one another and to districts on a variety of needs and topics.
Each year the sessions focus on a selected topic. This year’s topic is: "Preparing Students for the Common Core State Standards Performance Assessments."
Our dates for the 2013-14 school year will be:
- Friday, October 4, 2013 (Dr. Barbara Kapinus, Senior Research Consultant, SmarterBalanced)
- Friday, January 31, 2014 (Dr. Karen Wixson, Senior Research Consultant, PAARC, NAEP Panel member, Dean, UNC Greenville)
