The National Center for Literacy Education (NCLE) and a coalition of 30 education associations and policy organizations released a report on Wednesday April 3, 2013. The report: Remodeling Literacy Learning: Making Room for What Works is “based on a national survey of educators. Among its key findings are that educators at every level and in every subject embrace responsibility for improving student literacy, but that they need time and support for working together to ensure they can successfully teach the complex literacy skills required by the new state standards.”
The results and findings from the NCLE explain how United States educators are currently working together to meet rising literacy expectations and how best to support them going forward. The key findings are explored in more detail in the report; here is what they found:
- Literacy is not just the English teacher’s job anymore.
- Working together is working smarter.
- But schools aren’t structured to facilitate educators working together.
- Many of the building blocks for remodeling literacy learning are in place.
- Effective collaboration needs systemic support.
