Description

Readers are leaders.

Leaders are readers.

Literacy impacts every aspect of life--from schoolwork and test scores to the way we relate to others and to the career paths we and our students pursue. But learning to read--and teaching students to read--isn't always easy, which is why the most important tenet of developing a culture of reading in your school is to foster a love of reading.

In Lead with Literacy, educator and elementary school principal Mandy Ellis offers practical, immediately actionable, fun ideas and strategies that will deeply embed books, reading, and literacy into your school culture. You'll learn . . .



Who should decide which books students should be reading



What it takes to create a culture of reading



Where books can and should be found in your school



Why books need to come with a "no strings attached" policy



How to lead the way by sharing what you are reading now



Rather than focusing exclusively on Lexile scores and reading levels, Ellis encourages leaders to integrate literacy everywhere. The ultimate goal is to make reading a joy for every member of the school community--starting with the lead reader.
