Leading a School of Readers

Leading a School of Readers
Josh Gill, Site Administrator
Lower Kuskokwim School District

This emerging best practice was designed to address two specific issues:  1) Bring greater coherence to a reading program that was disjointed, fragmented, and piece-meal and 2) Utilize the RTI model to really focus instructional efforts on struggling students.  The actions and strategies activated to successfully implement this emerging best practice are also detailed in an article – Leading a School of Readers – that was written by Rhonda Barton and published in Education Northwest Magazine in Fall/Winter 2011.  Good schools are fueled by high performing teams of individuals working together using the research-base to inform their actions and strategies.
