Programs, Consultation, and Professional Development for Literacy Educators and School Leaders
Expand your expertise in teaching reading and writing. Learn how to build professional capacity in your school. Enhance your literacy coaching practice when working with teachers.
At Lesley's Center for Reading Recovery and Literacy Collaborative, helping educators improve student outcomes in literacy is at the heart of everything we do. Join the thousands of educators—from across the country and world—who come to the Center for their professional development. Directed by literacy expert and author Irene C. Fountas, our Center's professional learning opportunities will guide you in helping students meet and exceed state standards in English language arts.
The Center is also a training site for Literacy Collaborative—a school improvement model for grades K–8—and the Reading Recovery intervention program for first-grade students.
