Literacy Collaborative is a comprehensive school improvement model based on the extensive work of literacy experts Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell. The Lesley University Center for Reading Recovery and Literacy Collaborative is a training site for the Literacy Collaborative model.
The Literacy Collaborative blended (face-to-face and webinar) professional development model focuses on building in-district and in-school capacity for improving the literacy achievement of all students. The rigorous curriculum is based on a comprehensive language and literacy framework that includes a wide range of individual, small-group, and large-group reading, writing, and word study instruction guided by ongoing assessment.
