ELA Content Leader Initiative
Louisiana Department of Education
We lead the state of Louisiana’s ELA Content Leader initiative. In this training program, Louisiana educators deepen their knowledge of the ELA Guidebooks curriculum, standards-aligned instructional practices in literacy, and best practices for adult professional learning. This program prepares educators to be content and curriculum experts and lead curriculum-based PD in their schools. In 2018, the program has grown from 70 to almost 350 educators and will support thousands of teachers and students across the state to meet the expectations of the Louisiana Student Standards. Over 90% of Louisiana’s LEAs are participating.
