National Literacy Project (NLP)
The National Literacy Project professionals have vast experience in educational presentations and services at all levels. Whether a keynote speaker is needed for a large professional conference or a group facilitator is needed to work with a small school department or grade level, NLP Partners can provide consultant experiences designed for any specified group dealing with literacy in all content areas within the school curriculum.
They believe that effective professional development involves educators being immersed in opportunities to learn about best practice, time to incorporate newly learned concepts in their schools and classrooms, and debriefing and collaboration on “lessons learned.” As a result, they encourage a systematic planning process for literacy enhancement within schools and districts requiring several sessions with follow up collegial discussions concerning classroom implementation and student achievement results.
NLP partners will design specific professional development to fit any school or district needs. The following topics can be structured as a two to three hour introduction to initiate educator interest, a three to five day intensive workshop to design curriculum and instruction for implementation in the classroom, or as a monthly series to enhance school best practice. NLP partners will review local evaluation systems, professional development plans and any additional mandates to assure participants that there is a seamless vision for classroom expectations. All professional development can be designed for district staff, school based administrators, literacy teams, coaches, academic department teams, and classroom teachers.See more
