Synopsis

Our complex information age demands successful students that can read and write. Testing has made schools more accountable and schools are being challenged to do more to promote literacy among students. The Literacy Principal offers administrators the background they need to know about effective strategies for building more literate students. It shows them how to evaluate and support successful literacy initiatives in their schools and create more successful learners. This comprehensive book explores all aspects of literacy: Principles and practices that underlie literacy teaching and learning - including cueing systems, stages of reading, writing and spelling development; Strategies for promoting literacy growth in individual students including information on exemplary reading and writing programs.

Assessment and evaluation methods including insights into a variety of intervention programs; Factors that promote a commitment to literacy on the part of principals, teachers, parents, students and the community; This timely book clearly shows that literacy initiatives and programs are most effective when principals encourage teachers, and, indeed, the whole school community to embrace literacy education. Rooted in "real" classroom, the book includes profiles of principals who have been successful in affecting their school's literacy environment.
