A proven literacy system is the key to successful readers, writers and learners!

Do you recognize the connection between students who read and students who are truly learning? Do your students need literacy help before they can perform higher-level writing and content-learning activities? Are you looking for a reliable approach to improve literacy in your classroom, school, or district? This fieldbook sets forth a plan for improving literacy for students from kindergarten through high school.

The K-12 Literacy Leadership Fieldbook demonstrates a proven process for creating a fail-safe approach to literacy that results in measurable improvement. Blending leadership strategy with in-depth literacy knowledge, Taylor and Gunter show educators how to improve literacy through:
  • Using software and technology integration to enhance curriculum and instruction
  • Collaborating to set expectations for daily practice and a common language to drive instruction
  • Using data to determine what works and what doesn't in your literacy program
  • Developing a fail-safe literacy point of view throughout your school

Students who enjoy reading become better writers, more involved learners, and joyful readers, proving that success in literacy is essential for success in learning!

"For years, we have struggled with teaching reading at the middle and high school levels. Dr. Taylor's book provided the guidance that we so desperately needed. Her book could not have been more timely or more helpful. The book provides us a pathway to accelerating our students' literacy skills and literacy collaboration to support our teachers."
