Literacy Leadership


There’s an interesting relationship between advocacy and leadership: effective leaders are advocates for the issues shared by their colleagues. You may be in an official leadership position in your school or college, or you may be an educator who is leading the conversations around concerns on your campus. Leaders aren’t always the ones behind the podium. Sometimes the most important leaders are the ones who just quietly take notice of what’s going on.

“Identify and promote strategies and experiences that will develop the leadership potentials of principals and teachers in literacy instruction.”  — 2015 NCTE Education Policy Platform
