Literacy Collaborative Framework

What is Literacy Collaborative Framework?


The Literacy Collaborative Framework incorporates all of the elements of effective schools to support improved literacy instruction and student achievement through:
Providing a research-based instructional model that is language-based, student-centered, process-oriented, and outcome-based;
Creating in-school and in-district leadership through the training and support of school-based literacy leadership teams, administrators, and literacy coaches;
Establishing long-term site-based development for every member of the school’s literacy faculty; and
Helping schools monitor the progress of every student through systematized assessment, data collection, and analysis.
