MEMSPA: Leadership & Literacy Part 1 – Action Plan

The implementation of School-Wide and Center-Wide Literacy Practices aims to improve Michigan students’ reading levels across all grades, but clear steps and focus are required to make the greatest impact. In this course, you will develop an actionable plan to move towards the Essential School-Wide and Center-Wide Literacy Practices. You will utilize data and identify focus areas to help inform your plan and encourage growth in your school to help every student reach grade level in reading. This is the first of three micro-credentials on your pathway to the digital Leadership & Literacy badge.

In this course, you will:

  • Familiarize yourself with the Essential School-Wide and Center-Wide Practices in Literacy document,
  • Identify your focus areas in the School-Wide and Center-Wide Literacy Essentials using a screening tool,
  • Develop a plan of action to implement building-wide practices to help every student reach grade level literacy standards, and
  • Provide the evidence to earn your “Leadership & Literacy Part 1 – Action Plan” micro-credential.
