Irene C. Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell on Literacy Leadership

Literacy Leadership Blog Header Graphic

In a recent two-part series on literacy leadership, published in The Reading Teacher, Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell examine the critical role of teachers as leaders AND the role of facilitative talk in shaping a culture of professional learning.

This school year has been like no other. It has brought unprecedented challenges, but it has also offered important opportunities for meaningful professional learning, for authentic improvement within our schools, and for real progress toward creating systems that ensure equitable outcomes for all students.

The challenges remind our society of the vital importance of educators and schools. The opportunities remind our profession that leadership at every level — district, school, and classroom — is essential.
