About the LA K-2 Literacy Content Leader Initiative

Who is a LA K-2 Literacy Content Leader?

LA K-2 Literacy Content Leaders are elementary educators who, through training, develop and prepare to share their expertise with other teachers. LA K-2 Literacy Content Leaders effectively improve the quality of early literacy instruction in their schools by providing coaching and professional development to fellow teachers.

What is the LA K-2 Literacy Content Leader training?

This is a 9-day course developed by the LDOE that provides professional development for the science of reading, including how children learn to read and best practices for teaching all the components of beginning reading.

Who should attend LA K-2 Literacy Content Leader training?

LA K-2 ELA teachers are instructional leaders in their buildings and are ready to assume greater responsibility by increasing the effectiveness of early literacy instruction for LA K-2 teachers. BESE and the LDE require every UIR/CIR school that includes grades K-2 to have at least one person trained as a K-2 Literacy Content Leader. This course is open to any K-2 Literacy Content Leader. It is a good option for individuals or small districts that have only a few Content Leaders who need the training.
