About the Authors
In Literacy Unleashed, Bonnie D. Houck and Sandi Novak explain why ensuring high-quality reading instruction is one of school leaders' most important jobs and introduce their Literacy Classroom Visit (LCV) Model. Meticulously researched and refined through years of application in the field, the LCV Model enables administrators to evaluate and improve literacy instruction in their school or district.
The authors—both seasoned literacy and leadership experts—share processes and practices to help you
This comprehensive guide includes a repertoire of tools, checklists, and templates to support you on the LCV journey, along with scenarios and videos of real schools and practitioners to illustrate what the model looks like in action.
With both academic standards and 21st century jobs requiring higher-level literacy skills, quality reading instruction is more important than ever. This book provides everything you need to create a culture of literacy, reflective practice, and continual learning among staff and students alike.
