“The Literacy Leadership Team: Sustaining and Expanding Success ” Kathy S. Froelich and Enrique A. Puig This long-awaited resource presents a detailed framework for developing, implementing, and sustaining a successful literacy leadership team. Based on the authors' personal experiences, practice, and research, “The Literacy Leadership Team” outlines an action plan for literacy change. It advises each literacy team member to bring his or her own knowledge and experiences and offers the information and motivation for clarifying the mission of a school literacy leadership team. The book provides educators with procedures and practices for implementing its mandate for building capacity, sustaining professional learning, understanding literacy processing and instructional practice, utilizing resources and expanding success, and building “an ongoing, job-embedded, professional learning community.””The Literacy Leadership Team” is the perfect tool for developing a literacy program that best supports the school as a place of learning for all students and educators. “”If I were given a mandate to establish and organize a literacy program for a school, I would begin by reading and internalizing this comprehensive and thoughtful book…from the scenarios that begin each chapter, vignettes of school life that cause us to confront our own assumptions and biases, to the thoughtful and mindful reflections at the end of each chapter that help us to focus on our own school situations and possibilities…the authors have taught us that everything and everyone matter in the quest for literacy.”” -David Booth, Professor Emeritus, Scholar in Residence, The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, Canada, and author of “Reading Doesn't Matter Anymore” “””[The Literacy Leadership Team] “would be an effective tool for administrators, literacy coaches and teacher colleges that are interested in creating a literacy leadership team to improve learning and instruction…[A]n added strength is the breakdown of the two models of leadership in grades Pre-K-5 and a separate model for grades 6-12.” “-Vickie Jirash, Howe Public School, Howe, Oklahoma Kathy S.
