NCTE Pushes Collaboration With New Literacy Education Center

Take a look at Catherine Gewertz's blog post about the new National Center for Literacy Education, which NCTE announced the launch of at its conference. NCLE will offer free Web-based resources for teachers on the Literacy and Learning Exchange starting in 2012, as well as recognize and support schools and districts that implement "communities of practice"—much like PLCs—to conduct inquiries about student learning. It's still a bit hazy how the nearly two dozen partner organizations will all be involved. But Kent Williamson, executive director of NCTE, said the NCLE will be a "network of networks" and act as a "ground-up model" of reform in which school teams learn from each other. More on this down the road as the initiative's classroom and policy impacts become clear.
